Exhibition Draft Marulan Flood Study

On display until 03 April 2023, 05:00 PM

Exhibition - Draft Marulan Flood Study

Goulburn Mulwaree Council gives notice of the public exhibition of the Draft Marulan Flood Study. Unlike Goulburn, Marulan is sited at the top of two catchments and does not have any proximity to rivers and the impacts of riverine flooding.  However, Marulan does have creeks and watercourses which are located within the town and surrounding rural catchment.  Furthermore, some areas within the town are known to experience problems with overland flows and stormwater. The risks to life and property still apply to flooding whether due to overland flow or riverine flooding. 

A Draft Flood Study has been prepared by GRC Hydro and is on public exhibition from Friday 3 March, 2023.

The Draft Flood Study defines and identifies the extent and hazard for a range of flood events in Marulan with the development of a hydraulic model to simulate flood behaviour. It applies sensitivity analysis to the model including consideration of climate change and other selected factors.
