Project Description
In May 2017, the NSW Government released Resilient Valley, Resilient Communities - the Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley Flood Risk Management Strategy (Flood Strategy), proving a comprehensive long-term framework for the NSW Government, local councils, businesses and the community working together to reduce and manage flood risk in the Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley. The Strategy conculded that raising Warragamba Dam by around 14 meters is the best infrastructure option to reduce flood risk from floodwaters from the Warragamba River catchment. The Flood Strategy also includes a range of other infrastructure and non-infrastructure outcomes that must also be part of the solution for managing ongoing flood risk. WaterNSW, as the owner and operator of Warragamba Dam, has commenced consultation on the proposal and will undertake the enviormental assessment and detailed concept design. WaterNSW, as the owner and operator of Warragamba Dam, is leading the project. Over three years (2017-2019) WaterNSW will prepare a concept design and an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to obtain environmental planning approvals. Community and stakeholder consultation will be an important part of this EIS process. A final Business Case will be prepared by the Hawkesburry-Nepean Valley Flood Risk Management Directorate, in Infrastructure NSW, with input from WaterNSW, for consideration by the NSW Government. Construction, which is estimated to take four years to complete, can only begin when the environment and planning approvals are granted and once the NSW Government has made a decision on the Business Case.
