Urana Levee Upgrade & Morundah Flood Mitigation Design Projects

Floodplain Management Projects Federation Villages

Have your say!

 

Why we’re engaging

Federation Council have commissioned the design of flood mitigation works at Urana and Morundah.  The design work is being undertaken by consultants Dryside Engineering for Council.

The design work has progressed to concept design. 

Background

The flood mitigation works being designed at Urana and Morundah were recommended by the Federation Villages Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan adopted by Council in 2022.

The Urana Levee Upgrade project involves upgrading and extending the existing 1.2 km levee.  The upgraded levee will be 2.2 km in length, located predominantly on unused road reserve.  The levee will generally be approximately 1.8 metres high.  The levee will provide protection from riverine flooding (Urangeline Creek and Billabong Creek).

The Morundah project involves the design of a 660 m long diversion bund to protect against local runoff induced flooding originating from east of the township.  The bund will generally be approximately 0.6 metres high.  A new large capacity culvert to discharge local runoff flows through the Colombo Creek levee bank at the stormwater pump station site is also being designed.

Once the design projects are complete, Council will consider whether it will proceed with the flood mitigation works.  If supportive, Council will apply for NSW and / or Federal Government grant funding assistance to construct the flood mitigation works.    The timing of construction would be dependent on Council securing funding.
