Studies and Plans

Council with the support of funding grants from NSW government have undertaken a Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan for Woolgoolga which was completed in 2016.  The plans recommended options are now being investigated.

This followed the completion of a Flood Modelling Study for Woolgoolga in 2012, which produced comprehensive flood mapping.  The primary objective was to define the flood behaviour of the Woolgoolga Lake catchment through the establishment of appropriate ​models. The study has produced information on flood flows, velocities, levels and extents for a range of flood event magnitudes under existing catchment and floodplain conditions. Specifically, the study incorporates: 

  • Compilation and review of existing information pertinent to the study and acquisition of additional data including survey as required; 

  •  Development and calibration of appropriate hydrologic and hydraulic models;

  •  Determination of design flood conditions for a range of design event including the 20% AEP, 5% AEP, 2% AEP, 1% AEP, 0.2% AEP and PMF event; and

  • Presentation of study methodology, results and findings in a comprehensive report incorporating appropriate flood mapping.

Current Works and Projects

A project looking at options to improve flood evactuation access for Sunset Caravan park and the Turon Parade area of Woolgoolga has recently been completed. Further information will be available soon.
