We engaged a contractor to carry out the Bungendore Flood Risk Management Plan Implementation Measure One works. This stage involved clearing of non-native vegetation and reshaping the area where Turallo and Halfway Creeks meet. The reshaping works will help with increased storage for flood water help improve flows. The work has included planting of over 30,000 native trees and shrubs to rehabilitate the creeks.
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 has received 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 provided 1/3 of the funding.
Measure two involves upgrading the existing Turallo Terrace levee.
Measure three involves construction of an overflow channel across Tarago Road.
