Study Area Drawing
The Study Area Drawing is designed to seek your local knowledge and insights on the project area as it relates to:
- Areas of environmental value that need protection, and notable features about this location (e.g. species of plants / animals, key habitats, etc.).
- Areas of cultural or heritage values that need to be highlighted for protection.
- Other special features and values that should be protected or enhanced.
These local insights will better inform our work on the geomorphology, environmental and cultural heritage assessments for the area. This knowledge will also help inform our designs and locations for future water-related infrastructure to protect existing values and / or enhance these values through our blue-green design options to integrate water safely and sustainably within the landscape.
The existing 1% AEP flood extent is also included as a point of reference. This extent is based on legacy data and modelling and is presented solely for the purposes of providing an indication of the existing flood risk profile and to assist the community in providing their input.
One of the outcomes of this investigation is to update this 1% AEP flood extent, predicated on the most recent catchment data, best practice flood modelling guidelines, and your valuable feedback.
