Nepean River Flood Study

Council recently completed the Nepean River Flood Study and exhibited it for public comment. In response to the findings of that study we are now preparing a Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan for the Nepean River and its floodplains. This Study and Plan will tell us what flood management measures are required and help us plan for and manage known flood risks.

Council has appointed consultants Advisian Pty Ltd to prepare the Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan. For more information see the Information Sheet.

We are seeking your input, as your local knowledge and personal experience are invaluable in helping us plan for and develop effective floodplain risk management measures.

Community consultation

We are now in the first phase of community consultation and are seeking your thoughts on flooding issues and possible ways to manage them.

To do this we have provided a questionnaire for you to complete by 30 November 2018.
