Council to host Flooding Information Sessions

Urana Aquatic Centre

A Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan is being undertaken for the villages of Urana, Oaklands, Rand, Boree Creek and Morundah. The aim of these studies is to identify flood risk, investigate potential flood risk mitigation options, and where appropriate, make recommendations for options to be implemented.

Federation Council, with the support of the NSW Government Office of Environment and Heritage and WMA water is seeking to engage with residents in October to promote awareness of the study, identify key flood risks in each village and gather ideas for, and discuss, potential flood risk mitigation options to address identified issues.

Information sessions will be held in each village and Federation Council Mayor Pat Bourke is encouraging all residents to attend one of the five sessions in Boree Creek, Urana, Morundah, Oaklands and Rand.

Upcoming information sessions will be held as a forum for discussion of the flood issues in your area, and potential options to improve how floods are managed. Come along and take this opportunity to meet the project team and have your say at:

Boree Creek: 7pm – 9pm, Tuesday, 16 October – Boree Creek Hall.

Urana: 7pm – 9pm, Wednesday 17 October – Council Offices.

Oaklands: 10.30am – 12 noon, Thursday 18 October – Oaklands Hotel.

Rand: 1pm – 3pm , Thursday 18 October – Sports Ground Club Room.
