Narromine Levee Bank Augmentation now on Public Exhibition

On Wednesday 27 June 2018 Narromine Shire Council held an information forum in regards to the Narromine Levee Bank Augmentation. Following the information forum submissions and feedback is requested from residents.

Documentation and maps are available in relation to the Narromine Levee Bank Augmentation. These documents include the Risk Management Study and Plan (2009), the Narromine River Bank Levee Feasibility Study (2013), the Levee Impact Assessment, the Community Forum Presentation (2018), the SMEC Narromine Town Levee Community Presentation and the Proposed Levee Bank Alignment.

Narromine Shire Council’s Mayor, Cr Craig Davies said “A number of options have been presented to Council and the current option being considered is what has been deemed the most cost effective and efficient manner in which to protect the town.”

“The current Proposed Levee Bank Alignment is a concept plan that needs to be considered by residents.”

“In relation to the houses along Warren Rd we had two options; drive concrete slabs into the ground between houses and the river or choose an alternative that would allow water to run to a levee away from the river to be diverted downstream.”

“The final decision on whether this initiative goes ahead rests with the Council and the public have every opportunity to submit objections or support for the levee” he said.

Council is inviting all residents to have their say in regards to the Narromine Levee Bank Augmentation.
