Wagonga Inlet, Kianga and Dalmeny Flood Study

The Wagonga Inlet, Kianga and Dalmeny Flood Study was adopted by Council on Tuesday 28 June 2016. The Narooma Coastal Inlets Flood Risk Management Study and Plan commenced in 2018.

Study area

The Wagonga Inlet, Kianga and Dalmeny Flood Study (the study) includes four catchments: the Wagonga Inlet, Kianga Lake, the 'Duck Pond' and Mummaga Lake. The Wagonga Inlet is a trained entrance estuary, with the township of Narooma located within the catchment. The Kianga Lake, the Duck Pond and Mummaga Lake catchments are intermittently closed and open lakes and lagoons. The township of Kianga is within the Kianga Lake catchment and the township of Dalmeny is within the Mummaga Lake and Duck Pond catchments.


The Wagonga Inlet, Kianga and Dalmeny Flood Study is supported by the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water through funding provided under the NSW Floodplain Management Program.


The flood study report details the results and findings of the investigations made during the study.

Community engagement

A draft flood study was on public exhibition from 15 June to 24 July 2015 and community members were invited to read the draft and provide their feedback.

During the exhibition period, Council hosted a series of information sessions for community members and businesses to gain feedback on the draft study.

A questionnaire and information sheet was also distributed to residents and business owners within the study area.

The draft study and feedback provided by community members was presented to Council and considered prior to the plan's adoption on 28 June 2016.
