Establishing a Flood Risk Management Committee for Coolah Catchment

Council is inviting expressions of interest from community members eager to contribute to the new Flood Risk Management Committee (FRMC) to facilitate the preparation of a comprehensive flood study for the Coolah Catchment.

“Warrumbungle Shire Council has formed a new Flood Risk Management Committee (FRMC) to inform and facilitate the preparation of a comprehensive flood study for the Coolah Catchment. The Committee will serve as a crucial bridge between the Council and the residents of Coolah, providing valuable knowledge, experience, and ideas essential for the successful completion of the study,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “Members of the public who are eager to contribute to this vital initiative are encouraged to put in an Expression of Interest for the committee.” 

The FRMC will convene as needed to provide insights and feedback during the study's progression. Its members will actively engage with the broader community to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the flood risks faced by Coolah residents, thereby enriching the study's outcomes.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) for membership of the Flood Risk Management Committee are now open. Interested individuals can access the nomination form on Council's website under the 'Have Your Say' tab or by contacting Executive Administration Officer, Mrs. Joanne Hadfield, on (02) 6849 2000. 

Nominations must be submitted by 4.00 pm on Thursday, 6 June, 2024, via email to or by mail to PO Box 191, Coonabarabran NSW 2357.

"Council is eager for the community to participate in this extremely important project," remarked Cr Doolan. "Community involvement will be instrumental in shaping the future of flood management in the Coolah region."
