Pambula River, Pambula Lake and Yowaka River Flood Study

Have Your Say

Bega Valley Shire Council is preparing a flood study for the Pambula River, Pambula Lake and Yowaka River catchments. This flood study will provide Council with information to better understand, plan and manage the risk of flooding across these catchments. The study area includes Pambula, South Pambula, Pambula Beach, Greigs Flat, Lochiel, Nethercote and Broadwater and their environs. 

Although your property may be located within the catchment, this does not necessarily mean your property is impacted by flooding.  However, if you have experienced or witnessed any flooding or drainage problems within any of the above-mentioned areas, Council would appreciate your participation in this study by responding to our questionnaire. The questionnaire should only take a short time to complete. Please try to answer as many questions as possible and give as much detail as possible.  Please also attach any photos that you may have showing flooding in the area.

Bega Valley Shire Council has engaged consulting engineers Catchment Simulation Solutions to undertake the flood study.  The information that you provide in the questionnaire will provide an understanding how and where past floods have impacted the community and will assist in the calibration and testing of a computer flood model that will be developed as part of the flood study.

Feedback closes at 5pm Friday 27September 2019
All information provided is confidential and will only be used for the purpose of the flood study.

Community Information Session

Council will be hosting a community drop in centre at the Pambula Town Hall on Wednesday 18 September from 4pm to 6pm.  This will provide you with an opportunity to share your flooding experiences with Council and Council’s consultants.
