Hewitts Creek Catchment Flood Study

Consultation has concluded

As part of our commitment to managing flood and stormwater in our region, we’re working on a flood study for the Hewitts Creek catchment. The updated Study explains the ways flooding happens in the Hewitts Creek catchment, which covers an area of around 8 square kilometres in Thirroul and Bulli.

We’ll be sharing the report with the community during the public exhibition from 9 September to 8 October 2019. Come along to our drop-in community information session where the floodplain engineers working on the Study will be available to answer your questions. There’s no formal presentation as such. Instead, we’ll have the report available for viewing, display stands showing flood mitigation projects, flood modelling maps and a short flood modelling video to help explain how and where it can flood in this catchment. This is a drop-in session, so you can come in at any time.

When: Wednesday 18 September 2019, drop in anytime between 4pm - 6pm
Where: Bulli Senior Citizens Centre, 8 Hospital Rd, Bulli

If you’d like to attend and have accessibility or mobility requirements, or need an interpreter, please contact us to let us know how we can support your attendance.

If you’d like to learn more but are unable to attend a session, the report will also be available to view at Thirroul Library until Tuesday 8 October, with copies of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), feedback forms and reply-paid envelopes available.

Read the FAQ, draft report and have a look at the Floodplain Risk Management Process diagram to learn more about the Study, how we manage flood risk and what we will use the flood study information for, then share your feedback online with the project team.

Following our conversations with the community, the Hewitts Creek Flood Study will go to Council for adoption. After that, we can start working on a Floodplain Risk Management Study that looks at what the risks and damages from floods might be, and what we could do to mitigate (reduce) those risks. We’ll again be inviting the community to contribute to that process when the time comes.

Feedback closes on 8 October 2019.
