New Flood Mapping For Yenda Adopted
Wednesday, 09 Jun 2021Griffith City Council adopted the new Flood Mapping for Yenda at the Ordinary Meeting of Council held this week.
Council resolved to place the document on Public Exhibition during May, and held a successful consultation session in Yenda on Thursday 18 March.
Director Utilities, Mr Graham Gordon said the exhibition period allowed comments from residents of Yenda to review the document and provide their opinions and insight.
"Following the exhibition period, comments and submissions were considered by the consultant and the Flood Mapping document was updated to take into consideration the information we received from the community," said Mr Gordon.
The document was compiled by Torrent Consulting, and now adopted by Council, the new maps can be sent to the Insurance Council of Australia for their consideration. This also provides a document for Yenda residents to utilise when discussing insurance premiums with their insurance provider and may result in reduced household and content insurance premiums for Yenda residents.
Council has already carried out a number of flood mitigation activities, including the installation of the Mirrool Creek flood warning system, construction of a floodgate at East Mirrool Regulator (EMR) site, and the implementation of Emergency Breaching Protocols.
The Updated Flood Mapping for Yenda can be viewed on the Council website at griffith.nsw.gov.au
