Cootamundra Flood Study

Cootamundra Flood Study

Community Consultation Period: 10th July – 14th August 2019

Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council is currently undertaking the Cootamundra Flood Study. The Flood Study is based on current flood modelling techniques and industry guidance, and once completed, will give Council a better understanding of the current flood risk to the community. The outcomes of the Flood Study will support many Council functions including planning and development, community education and designing flood risk mitigation works. Council has engaged flooding and hydrology experts, WMAwater, to complete the study. 

Council is seeking input from the community to assist in the development of computer models that simulate flood behaviour. In particular, we are interested in collecting records of flooding such as photographs, flood marks (e.g. mud or debris lines), and learning about your experiences of flood behaviour in Cootamundra.

A short questionnaire is available online at

The newsletter and questionnaire are available for download from Council’s website:
