Leeton council seeks input for vital flood study


Leeton Shire Council has received funding from the NSW Government to review and update its local flood study.

The Flood Study Review will provide Council and the community with up-to-date flood information for the towns of Leeton, Yanco, Murrami, Whitton and Wamoon, Council said in a statement.

“Residents of these areas are invited to contribute to the Study by sharing their photographs and experiences from previous flood events, which will help ensure the updated flood models reflect real flood behaviour in the study area,” Council said.

“The key objective of this study review is to improve understanding of flood behaviours and impacts, and better inform the management of flood risk through flood risk management, emergency management and land use planning.”

The Council is currently in the Data Collection and Review stage with consultant, WMS Engineering, gathering and reviewing all available information and past reports, including local knowledge and the community’s experiences of flooding.
