Sunday Creek and Dry Creek Flood study

Consultation has concluded

The Sunday Creek and Dry Creek Flood study project has commenced and we are seeking community input.

The study will build knowledge about the flooding behaviour of rivers and creeks in this catchment. This will help inform emergency planning, emergency responses and future land-use planning.

Photos, records and stories wanted

You can help us build our database for this study by sharing:

  • old photos of significant floods you may have collected or found
  • historical rainfall records
  • river/creek height records that you may have observed or recorded.

Any information you can share with us will help to validate and calibrate flood models so we can create accurate flood maps for our region.

Survey

You can load your photos or information by completing the survey on this page.

Drop in sessions

You can visit us at one of our drop in sessions.


Project partners

This study has been funded by the Federal Governments Natural Disaster Resilience Grant Scheme (NDRGS).

  • How to add to the interactive map

    8 months ago

    There are two ways to take this survey.

    We have uploaded a traditional Q&A style survey for people to upload photos and submit information for the study.

    But we have also included an interactive map. As more pins are dropped, the public will be able to see what information and where has been added. The photos and information will be sent to the project manager.

    For example: A water over land pin has been dropped to the Dry Creek at Jeffreys Lane in Broadford.

    Once the pin was dropped, the survey appeared on a drop down menu and the picture was uploaded.

    This survey was submitted. The pin is now available on the map.

  • About the study

    9 months ago

    Sunday Creek and Dry Creek Flood Study project is a part of the initiative under the Natural Disaster Resilience Grants Scheme with financial commitments by the Australian, state and local governments.

    This initiative will help build flood resilient communities. Improved knowledge of flood behaviour will also help with future land-use and development assessment by incorporating flood zone and overlay controls. It will also help inform the structure planning for Broadford and the rural valleys.

    The objective of this project is to produce flood maps for the Sunday Creek catchment, including Broadford and Heathcote Junction. These will outline the region's floodplains and will help council to better understand where flooding would occur during large rain events and how this has changed over time.
