Share your views on drainage issues in Porepunkah

Porepunkah residents, business operators and land owners are being asked to contribute to an upcoming drainage strategy for their township.

04 May 2021

Alpine Shire Council and consultants (Engeny Water Management) are engaging with the community to inform the development of a Porepunkah Drainage Strategy.

Manager Asset Maintenance Michael Buckley said anyone who lives, works or owns property in Porepunkah is encouraged to share their views on the impacts of water drainage and past flooding.

“The Porepunkah Drainage Strategy will investigate, model and recommend ways to address public drainage across the township,” he said.

“Our consultants will work on hydraulic modelling to gain a strong understanding of water movement in Porepunkah, but anecdotal and photographic evidence from residents will be essential to calibrate that model.

“Not only does this help validate modelling, but it can also help guide options for flood mitigation and identify the areas of community concern.”

If you live, work or own property in Porepunkah, please complete this short survey to help us ensure the strategy is reflective of community needs:

Or why not drop in to discuss your drainage concerns at a Community Drop In Session at the Porepunkah Hall from 3pm - 6pm on Wednesday, 12 May?

There will be another opportunity for the community to have their say on the results of flood mapping and proposed mitigation options later in the strategy process.
