The Nepean River, South Creek, tributaries thereof and associated floodplains are a predominant feature of the Camden Local Government Area. Flooding along these waterways impacts upon properties within the floodplain to varying degrees.
Flood information within the Camden Local Government Area has been broken into three main catchments; these being the Nepean River (excluding Narellan Creek), Narellan Creek and South Creek.
