Flood study

Minnegang Creek Flood Study

The Minnegang Creek Catchment is located approximately 7km south of Wollongong. The Minnegang Creek Catchment is approximately 90 hectares in size and is largely developed and zoned as low density residential (roughly 80% of the catchment). The remaining part of the catchment comprises recrectional and openspace areas, and some areas of bushland.

The overall objective of this study is to improve understanding of flood behaviour and impacts, and better inform management of flood risk in the study area through consideration of the available information, and relevant standards and guidelines. The study will also provide a sound technical basis for any further flood risk management investigations in the area. The outputs of the study will assist this by facilitating information sharing on flood risk across government and with the community, as well as providing a better understanding of the:

  • variation in flood behaviour, flood function, flood hazard and flood risk in the study area;
  • risks on the existing and future community;
  • impacts of climate on flood risk; and,
  • emergency response situation and limitations.
