What is the study about?

Blue Mountains City Council have engaged consultants Jacobs to undertake a floodplain risk management study and plan for the Bullaburra to Linden study area. This study and plan is now complete, and the draft report is now on public exhibition.

The study area is quite large, covering the townships of Bullaburra, Lawson, Hazelbrook, Woodford and Linden. There are 8 catchments that have been defined by the previous flood study, undertaken in 2012, which are the focus of the current study. These catchment areas are located south of the Great Western Highway and are shown in the map.

The objective of this study is to improve understanding of flood behaviour and impacts, and better inform management of flood risks in the study area. The study has identified and prioritised a range of flood mitigation measures to manage flood risk effectively and efficiently.
