River Flood Prediction Gauge Evaluation - ALL Basins

SMEC Australia was engaged by the Specialist Coastal and Flood Services Branch of the NSW Department of Land and Water Conservation (DLWC) to undertake an evaluation of the stream gauge network operated by the DLWC. The evaluation was to concentrate on the flood prediction role of these gauges. Gauges maintained by NSW Public Works (coastal areas) are excluded from the evaluation.

The evaluation was to address four essential issues:

  • identify key gauges within the current gauge network;
  • assess tlieir cuiTent operational status;
  • make recommendations on that status; and
  • identify the costs to upgrade and maintain the network to the required standard.
