Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

Salt Pan Creek Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan (Draft)

Salt Pan Creek is a tributary to the Georges River and drains parts of the southern Sydney councils of Bankstown, Hurstville and Canterbury. This study only considers the Salt Pan Creek catchment within Canterbury City LGA and does not include areas of the Salt Pan Creek catchments outside of Canterbury City LGA. Salt Pan Creek itself has four main tributaries which have been extensively modified and act largely as part of the drainage system. Tributary D is the only one within the study area. The Canterbury City LGA is located 17 kilometres south-west of the Sydney CBD and comprises 16 suburbs. Salt Pan Creek drains the suburbs of Punchbowl and Riverwood.

Following on from the Salt Pan Creek Flood Study, WMAwater was engaged by Canterbury City Council to undertake the Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan. Key objectives for the project include:

  • review the current Salt Pan Creek Flood Study (September 2011);
  • review existing environmental planning policies and instruments and identify modifications required to current policies;
  • review local flood plan and examine the present flood warning system, community awareness and emergency response measures;
  • identify flood planning levels and flood planning areas; and
  • identify works, measures and restrictions aimed at reducing the impacts and losses caused by flooding and consider their impacts if implemented.
