Nepean River Catchment

The Nepean River is a major waterway running through the Camden Local Government Area, entering at the southern boundary and exiting at the north western boundary. The Nepean catchment is the largest within the Camden Local Government Area and includes a number of tributaries. Of these tributaries, Narellan Creek flows through a highly urbanised region.



Nepean River – Current Works

Having completed the initial Nepean River Flood Study, the next step of the Floodplain Risk Management Process is to undertake the Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan (FRMS&P) as required by the State Government. This process is necessary in order to refine the existing flooding behaviour and associated hazard, and to investigate any possible mitigation options to reduce flood damage and risk. Council has engaged a specialist consultant, Cardno to undertake the FRMS&P for the Nepean River catchment based on the 2015 flood study. This FRMS&P will include the Narellan Creek catchment area.
