Drainage studies to help understand flooding and mitigation options

Extensive drainage studies for West Mackay, North Mackay, Andergrove and Beaconsfield have recently been completed to help understand flooding and mitigation options.

Each study involved developing a 2D hydraulic model to understand local flood behaviour and assess potential options to reduce existing and future flood risk for the community.

The purpose of the studies is to inform council’s flood hazard mapping, capital works planning, and assist in emergency management.

Council invites landowners in these areas to review these studies and submit comments prior to them being presented to council for further consideration.

To review the studies, visit Connecting Mackay.

Submissions will be open until Monday, November 23, 2020.
