Wingecarribee Shire Council has been awarded $134,000 funding to help manage flood risks, and reduce the impact of floods on the community through a state government initiative.
The funding was made possible through the Floodplain Management Program, which aims to increase the resilience and protection of communities across the state from flooding.
It will be used by council to review the Bowral Floodplain Risk Management Study and plan.
"I thank Wingecarribee Council for applying for this grant and looking to update their existing plan and recommendations from 2005 and 2009," Member for Wollondilly Judy Hannan said.
"As we have seen the increase of storm events and after a very wet summer this funding is very timely."
The study assessed potential floods and established plans to help mitigate the impacts of flooding in Bowral.
It was completed in 2009 and adopted by council.
"Following works with the Reford Farm detention basin the new modelling will include new flooding information from the past 14 years using modern modelling," Ms Hannan said.
"The NSW Government will continue to partner with councils to increase our understanding of flood risk. This will allow us to more effectively implement actions to reduce flood impacts on local communities," Minister for Climate Change and the Environment Penny Sharpe said.
The Floodplain Management Program has been in place since the 1980s.
Funding is usually provided at a 2:1 ratio, with $2 contributed from the NSW government for every $1 provided by a council.
