Implementation Measure 1
We have engaged a contractor to carry out the Bungendore Flood Risk Management Plan Implementation Measure 1 works. This involves vegetation clearing and reshaping of where the Turallo and Halfway Creeks meet, to reduce flooding impacts in Bungendore.
Flooding of Turallo and Halfway Creeks results in economic and social impacts to residents and business owners in Bungendore. In 2014 Council adopted a Floodplain Risk Management Plan for Bungendore which recommended a variety of flood mitigation measures be implemented. This led to the production of designs for various flood mitigation measures aimed at reducing the impacts of flooding in Bungendore. The Measure 1 flood mitigation works will enhance the capacity for floodwaters to escape more rapidly from the confluence of Turallo and Halfway Creeks during major flood events.
The project will receive funding from the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) under the 2019/20 Natural Disaster Resilience Program’s Floodplain Grants Scheme. Under the funding agreement Council will provide 1/3 of the funding.
