THE draft Collins Creek Flood Study has been released by Wollongong City Council for public exhibition.
The report, which covers the Collins Creek catchment in Bulli, Woonona, Russell Vale, Bellambi and Corrimal, will be on public exhibition for comment from June 17 to July 19.
Community information sessions will be held at Bulli Senior Citizens Centre and Bulli Surf Club where the floodplain engineers working on the study will be able to answer your questions this Saturday and the following Tuesday.
- Saturday June 22, drop in anytime between 9:30am – 11am, Bulli Senior Citizens Centre, 8 Hospital Rd, Bulli
- Tuesday June 25, drop in anytime between 4pm – 5:30pm, Bulli Surf Lifesaving Club, Trinity Row, Bulli
Following the consideration of submissions received during the public exhibition period, the Collins Creek Flood Study will go to Council for adoption.
A Council spokesperson said the Floodplain Risk Management Study looks at what the risks and damage from floods might be, and what could be done to reduce those risks.
“We’ll again be inviting the community to contribute to that process when the time comes,” the spokesperson said.
The draft study is also available at Corrimal Library, along with copies of a Frequently Asked Questions sheet, feedback forms and reply-paid envelopes available for people to make comment.
