Emu Plains Flood Study

Council has engaged BMT Eastern Australia Pty Ltd, an independent consultant specialising in flood studies, to prepare an Overland Flow Flood Study for the Emu Plains Catchment.

The extent of the study area is shown on the map and includes the suburbs of Emu Plains, Emu Heights and Leonay and the Tunnel Gully, Knapsack Creek and Lapstone Creek Catchments.

We need your help

If you have experience of flooding in the study area, we would love to hear from you. Please fill in our online questionnaire before 12 November 2018.

If your property is located within the study area, it doesn't necessarily mean your property is impacted by flooding.

Why are we doing the study?

The preparation of a flood study will help Council to understand the existing flooding problem within the catchment. It will also help to identify where flood risk reduction measures may be best implemented to reduce the cost of flooding to the community, assist with emergency management, and guide future development.
