Report

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

 

The model has been revised and the result of the revised model will be presented to the committee at the next FRMAC meeting or possibly at a workshop (if time permitted to be scheduled on the 4th week of January 2019).

 

Project 1793 – Main City and North Wagga Levee

 

Wagga Wagga’s main city levee project reaches another milestone this month as Stage 1 nears completion and preparations for the Stage 2 upgrade mobilisation commences.

The upgrade of the remaining 6km of levee bank between Gobbagombalin Bridge and Hammond Avenue is the second part of the lengthy and complex project. The aim is to provide 1 in 100-year flood protection to the city for the first time.

Stage 2 work involves the extension and reinforcement of existing concrete retaining walls and installation of capped sheet piles. Preparation work is underway in the lead up to construction work starting on the first section between Wiradjuri Bridge and Johnston Street.

The Wiradjuri Walking Track will be completely closed for several months in this section from 7 January 2019.

Residents and business operators affected by the works, or anyone interested in the Stage 2 levee project, are invited to attend community information sessions to be held on 11 and 12 December.

Council staff are working with the contractors to minimise disruptions as much as possible and thank residents and businesses for their cooperation throughout these works

Riverina-based firm Murray Constructions was endorsed as the successful tenderer for the multi-million dollar project at the 29 October 2018 Council meeting.

The Stage 2 upgrade is scheduled to take approximately 14 months, weather dependant.

 

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

 

Council has been successful in securing the grant funding for the Flood Mitigation Option Feasibility Study for North Wagga & Floodplain Residents. Council is waiting on the Funding Agreement from the Office of Environment and Heritage.

 

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

 

Council is collecting all the data and relevant information for this study. GRC Hydro and Council are working on the materials for the initial community consultation. These materials are aimed at updating the community on the studies’ purpose and requesting their input on possible mitigation options.

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.
