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

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.”
