What are your experiences of flooding in the Narellan Creek catchment area?

Camden Council is calling on residents and business owners to share their experiences to help identify where measures might best be implemented to reduce the risk of flooding in the catchment and to assist with emergency management.

Feedback will help inform Council’s upcoming detailed overland flow study. The Narellan Creek catchment area encompasses the suburbs of Narellan, Narellan Vale, Harrington Park, Gregory Hills, Smeaton Grange, Currans Hill, Kirkham, Elderslie and Mount Annan.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Ashleigh Cagney, said local information and experiences would be extremely beneficial.

“Flooding is naturally a concern for our region and many local residents have unfortunately experienced the heartache, stress and inconvenience of previous floods,” she said.

“We’re being proactive so Council and the community can be as prepared as possible for future flood events.”

Cr Cagney encouraged residents and business owners to share what they had.

“Observations and photos of flooding behaviour from the community are a valuable source of information which will help develop computer models of the extent and nature of potential flooding,” she said.
