Shoalhaven City Council - Terara Levee Audit

Sinclair Knight Merz was commissioned by Shoalhaven City Council to carry out an audit of Terara Levee. The study was required to cover the following areas:

  • Survey of the top of the levee in order to identify any low areas and allow an assessment of the size of flood that the levee could withstand before overtopping
  • Cross section survey of the levee
  • Geotechnical investigation to identify soil types and their soil parameters
  • Assessment of the stability of the levee under all conditions
  • Assessment of the causes of erosion of the riverbank and the magnitude of the effects
  • Identification of appropriate cost effective environmentally friendly protection measures and the cost of the works
  • Costing of recommended works for bank protection and to bring the levee to a uniform height

This study has responded to all the above requirements and has identified required works. Supporting information such as the survey and geotechnical investigation are contained in the Appendices.
