Fairy and Cabbage Tree Creeks Flood Study

Fairy and Cabbage Tree Creeks drain a relatively small catchment of 2074 ha or 20.74 square kilometres. The catchments of the tributary streams rise from the beach area (near sea level) to levels of between 300mAHD and 500mAHD. The width of the catchment (high western areas to coastal eastern areas) is only in the order of 4km. These steep catchment conditions provide for dynamic flooding and geomorphic conditions in the catchment.

This Flood Study report defines flood problems in the study area. It is a technical document describing the development and simulation of the hydrologic and hydraulic models and presenting the simulation results for the calibration and design events with existing conditions. The FRMS&P uses the flood model results presented in this Flood Study report to evaluate options for managing the flood problem. It includes a climate change sensitivity test and considers the implications of existing and future flood behaviour for setting Flood Planning Levels (FPLs). This main volume of this Flood Study report is accompanied by an A3 Drawing Addendum.
