This project is to construct/realign a portion of the South Albury Levee within Australia Park.
Historically, Albury has experienced periodic flooding events due to significant rainfall and/or high river levels. A series of flooding events in the 1970s prompted the construction of the existing South Albury Levee (commissioned in 1976). Smaller events have occurred more recently in 2010 and 2016 and are estimated to be approximately a 20% Annual Exceedance Probability (AEP) and 10% AEP respectively.
Council completed a series of Flood Studies and following this developed the Albury Floodplain Risk Management Study & Plan. The study recommended a number of initiatives/actions to be undertaken to improve the flood resilience of the community while improving environmental outcomes.
This project is to construct/realign a portion of the South Albury Levee within Australia Park in order to allow the proposed car park to be constructed.
