About the Study PDF Print E-mail

Flooding causes an estimated $314 million dollars' worth of damage each year and causes more annual damage than any other natural disaster in Australia. Over 2,000 people have also lost their lives during floods in Australia since settlement. As such, flooding can place a significant financial burden on communities and place lives at risk.

Wingecarribee Shire Council is currently preparing a floodplain risk management study for the Whites Creek catchment which covers the township of Moss Vale. The study will help Council to identify flooding "trouble-spots" and allow for a targeted assessment of where flood risk reduction measures would be best implemented. It is part of a series of flood studies and floodplain risk management studies being completed across the Shire as part of Council’s Floodplain Risk Management Program, which aims to reduce the impact of flooding on the community.
