Bathurst Council releases new floodplan

Bathurst Regional Council is preparing to pump $2 million into its long running floodplain management plan.

Widening the Perthville bridge, extensive channel work, and a huge levee are all on the council’s agenda, as it enters the final stages of its Carlingford Street levee project in South Bathurst.

The council is in the process of finalising its funding for the initiative, with the cost being shared between council state and federal governments.

Darren Sturgiss from Bathurst Regional Council says the project is still going through environmental approvals, and work is not expected to be given the all clear until funding grants are announced in coming months.
