Thank you for the community contributions we received to help inform our flood study. This consultation has now closed. We will be reviewing the submissions and including this information in further investigations of the study areas.

About the project

We are building a resilient City by planning for flood risks. Council has adopted six flood studies and floodplain risk management studies and plans with the help of our community. Now it is time to study the eight tributary catchments across Lake Mac to inform risk management plans protecting residents and property.

The tributary catchments include:

1. Plains Gully Creek at Swansea and Caves Beach

2. Sheppards Creek at Croudace Bay and Valentine

3. Muraban Creek at Floraville and Belmont North

4. Mills Gully Creek at Belmont and Valentine

5. Fullers Creek and Freshwater Creek at Bonnells Bay

6. Mannering Creek, Swampy Creek and Wyee Creek at Wyee

7. Postmistress Creek at Sunshine and Morisset East

8. Puntei Creek at Carey Bay

We’ve appointed WMAwater, a specialist consultancy in flood models and floodplain management, to carry out the eight flood studies. The studies will be undertaken in accordance with the NSW Government's April 2005 Floodplain Development Manual and other related guidelines. The project is scheduled for completion later this year.
