Floods & Fires

Floods & Fires

Armidale Regional Council is a proud member of the Floodplain Management Association.


We wish to remind the community that under no circumstances should anyone attempt to enter floodwater. Driving, riding and walking through floodwater are major causes of death during a flooding event. Children playing in or close to flooded areas are especially at risk.

Tingha Flood Study

The Tingha Flood study has been commissioned to determine the flood risk to the township of Tingha.

Although flooding has not occurred recently within the township, it is important to determine the potential risk to the community. This information not only helps Council be better prepared for natural disasters, but also improves the community’s resilience through a better understanding of flood behaviour.
