About the Study PDF Print E-mail

Flooding causes an estimated $314 million dollars' worth of damage each year and causes more annual damage than any other natural disaster in Australia. Over 2,000 people have also lost their lives during floods in Australia since settlement. As such, flooding can place a significant financial burden on communities and place lives at risk.

Wingecarribee Shire Council is currently preparing a flood study for the Nattai Ponds catchment which includes the townships of Braemar, Willow Vale and Renwick. The study will help Council to better plan, predict and manage the risk of flooding across the catchment. It is part of a series of flood studies being completed across the Shire as part of Council’s Floodplain Risk Management Program, which aims to reduce the impact of flooding on the community.
