Tomakin Mossy Point and Mogo Flood Study

Status: Adopted, 28 March 2017

Study area: This study includes the catchments of Tomaga River and Candlagan Creek, which are approximately 130 square kilometres. The study included residential areas in the towns of Mogo, Tomakin, Mossy Point and Broulee (adjoining Candlagan Creek only), which are located in the catchment and are potentially exposed to a flood risk.

Purpose: The study provides information on flood behaviour including flood levels, potential hazards and projected impacts from climate change.
This study is Stage 1 of the flood management process and does not recommend any management actions to manage the impacts on or community from flooding. A separate report will be prepared as Stage 2 of the flood management process to investigate detailed long-term management options.

Funding: The study is supported by the Office of Environment and Heritage through funding provided under the NSW Floodplain Management Program.


Community engagement

A draft flood study was on public exhibition from 16 May to 24 June 2016 and community members were invited to read the draft and give their feedback.

While the draft was on exhibition, we hosted public information sessions at the Tomakin Community Hall on 7 and 8 June 2016 and invited community members to drop in to learn about the project, ask questions, and express any views about the draft study.

The draft program and feedback provided by community members were presented to Council and considered prior to the study's adoption.
