HURSTVILLE LGA FLOOD STUDY

Hurstville City Council has resolved to undertake an overland Flood Study for the Hurstville Local Government Area. This study is jointly funded by the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and Council. Council has engaged SMEC Australia as the lead consultant to undertake the Flood Study with the assistance of Catchment Simulation Solutions. The flood study forms an initial stage towards the development of a comprehensive Floodplain Risk Management Plan in accordance with the NSW Floodplain Risk Management Manual.

Council and SMEC Australia are eager to receive any comments and information for the project from the community. The participation of the community is essential to the success of the study, particularly when it comes to flood information.
