Managing flood risk in your neighbourhood - Dobroyd and Hawthorne Canals

Council has endorsed the public exhibition of the draft flood risk management plan for the Dobroyd Canal and Hawthorne Canal catchment areas.

Under the NSW Government’s Flood Prone Land Policy, Councils are responsible for managing flood affected areas to help reduce risk to people and property. Council has been developing a flood risk management plan for the Dobroyd Canal and Hawthorne Canal catchment areas and is exhibiting the final draft to the community for comment.



About the flood risk management plan

The plan builds on the Dobroyd Canal Flood Study which was adopted by Council in 2014, the Hawthorne Canal Flood Study adopted in 2015, and community consultation undertaken in early 2017. The study and plan was developed by Council’s consultants, WMA Water, and identifies a number of options for mitigating flood risk in the catchment.
