Wollongong City Flood Study (2019)

A review of the Wollongong City Flood study has been conducted on behalf of Wollongong City Council (“Council”) for the Wollongong City study area. The purpose of this review was to define the flood behaviour within the study area incorporating Wollongong City Council’s revised culvert blockage policy, recent urban developments and changes to the channel characteristics of the Gurungaty Waterway. The flood behaviour at Swan Street and the southern parts of Church Street, Evans Street, Kembla Street and Corrimal Street have been investigated in detail. An assessment of the impact of future flood risks associated with sea level rise and increases in rainfall intensity was also undertaken.
