Report

Project 1753 - Wagga Wagga Major Overland Flow Flood (MOFF) Risk Management Study and Plan

 

Advice has been received from WMAwater that an error has been found within the Wagga Wagga Major Overland Flow Flood model and WMAwater is now reviewing the model for all the domains. This process includes re-running the model between ARR1987 and ARR 2016. It is anticipated that this may take between four to six weeks for completion upon which will receive a Model Update Report.

 

Project 1793 – Main City and North Wagga Levee Construction – Stage 1

 

The downstream spillway at Flowerdale has been completed, placement of topsoil has been finalized and the site cleaned and rubbish removed.

 

Stage 1 Phase 2, construction of the upstream spillway has commenced with Burgess Earthmoving undertaking the work. The first length of footpath capping the levee has been poured and the formwork and steel for the spillway has been placed in preparation of the pour commencing. It is anticipated that this phase will be completed by the end of December 2018.

 

Stage 1 Phase 3, between Hutcheon and Pearce and The Gobbagombalin Bridge, has commenced with the clean up of loose material, placement of topsoil, and fencing, this should be completed by Christmas.

 

The tender for Stage 2 has closed and the offers have been assessed by an appropriate panel. The preferred tenderer will be recommended to Council at the next available Council Meeting with work commencing before Christmas 2018.

 

Project 2000 – Wagga Wagga Revised Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

 

Council is waiting for the announcement on 2018-19 Floodplain Management Program for the funding of the Flood Mitigation Option Feasibility Study for North Wagga & Floodplain Residents. The funding may be announced by early next year.

 

Council is having discussion with OEH and SES in exploring funding opportunity to improve flood warning systems as recommended by the plan.

 

Project concepts and briefs are being prepared for all recommendations that were endorsed by the plan. This will enable Council to prioritise the projects in accordance with Council’s Delivery Program and Operational Plan.

 

Project 18640 – Wagga Wagga Villages Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

 

Council resolved to award the tender on 24 September 2018 to GRC Hydro. GRC Hydro will develop separate Floodplain Risk Management Studies and Plans for Tarcutta, Uranquinty and Ladysmith. The aims and objectives of this project will be presented by GRC Hydro representatives at this meeting.

Link to Strategic Plan

Community Leadership and Collaboration

Objective: We are active community members

Outcome: We recognise we all have a role to play

 

Risk Management Issues for Council

There is a risk that the cost to carry out these projects could be more than was originally estimated. Therefore, Council would need additional funds to complete the works. However, some contingency was built into all of the estimates to reduce this risk

Internal / External Consultation

The Office of Environment and Heritage have been heavily consulted throughout the process of planning and executing these projects.

 

NSW Emergency Management is the responsible funding body and receives quarterly status update reports.

 

NSW State Emergency Services and Bureau of Meteorology are consulted when required.

 

Each of these projects is managed using a project steering group made up of members from different areas of Council as per Councils project management methodology.

 

Council officers in various directorates are members of the project steering committees for each project.
