Duck Creek Flood Study Review (Yallah)

Consultation has concluded

We’ve recently updated the 2012 Duck Creek Flood Study and would like to share it with the community and get feedback.

As part of this work, we sent out a community survey, spoke to businesses and government agencies and contacted utility service providers to get their input. We gathered historical observations and were provided with information and photos of flooding in this catchment.

We’ve made minor changes to the flood models to account for changes in the catchment since 2012, included additional survey data and modelled the March 2017 flood. The updated Study also uses Council’s revised Blockage Policy, which was updated in 2016. This Policy helps us to determine how the potential blockage of bridges, culverts and other stormwater channels might affect flood behaviour. Although there have been some changes, the revised flood extent and behaviour is similar to the existing Study.

Come along to a drop-in community information session for a chat with the floodplain engineers who are updating the Study. You can ask questions and share information about your experiences of flooding in this area.

  • Where: Scribbly Gum Room at Dapto Ribbonwood Centre, 93-109 Princes Hwy, Dapto
  • When: Monday 8 April 2019, 4pm – 5:30pm

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.

Read the Report and supporting documents to learn more about the project, then share your feedback online with the project team.

Feedback closes on Monday 13 May 2019.
