Managing flood risk in your neighbourhood – Marrickville Valley Catchment

Background

In 2015, Council engaged a consultant, Cardno, to conduct the Marrickville Valley Flood Risk Management Study and Plan. The plan builds on the Marrickville Valley Flood Study which Council adopted in 2013.

The plan identifies options for reducing flood risk in the catchment including:

  • better flood planning;
  • controls on development; and
  • new or upgraded stormwater systems

Over the past year Cardno has been developing options to reduce flood risk using technical assessments and information provided by the community about past storm events.

What’s happening now?

Council is now seeking feedback from the community about the options to mitigate floods with new or upgraded storm water systems.

You can see the options by:

  • Looking at the Options Overview plan to see what options are being proposed in your neighbourhood
  • Using the reference number on the Options Overview plan (e.g. 01.01, 06.01 etc) to look at the Option Plan for this location. All Option Plans can be found under Flood Mitigation Options.

The Option Plans shows how much each option is expected to reduce flooding in a minor flood event - a“1 in 2 year event” - and in a major flood event - a “1 in 100 year event”. The plan also has information about how the option scores against a preliminary assessment of economic, social and environmental metrics. Find out more about these metrics

Have your say

You are invited to select the stormwater systems you would like Council to implement and provide feedback on any of the options by completing the form below

The feedback you provide will directly influence how an option scores on the community and stakeholder support metric. Read more about the metrics used to prioritise options

The last day to provide feedback is 9 April 2017.

What happens next?

Council will use the feedback provided by the community to prioritise options and finalise the Draft Marrickville Valley Flood Risk Management Study and Plan. The draft plan will then be presented to Council for endorsement before it is placed on public exhibition later in the year.

The final plan will guide Council’s flood management works in the catchment over the next 10 years.

It is likely that Council will only be able to fund and build high priority works within the next 10 years. However Council will work with the NSW Government, Roads and Maritime Services and Sydney Water to potentially implement more high priority options.
