Council is investigating options to reduce severe flooding in areas of Gerringong and Jamberoo following intense rain causing flooding in August 2020. 

We have engaged Catchment Simulation Solutions to carry out specific flood risk management studies for:

  • Bridge Road catchment (Gerringong)
  • Jamberoo School of Arts (Jamberoo)
  • Wyalla Road catchment (Jamberoo)

The investigation will include hydrologic and hydraulic analysis of all three catchments to identify cost effective options to mitigate flood risks and reduce the effects of flooding on the community.

Community consultation, including questionnaires and face to face meetings, will be carried out between April and May 2021.

Subject to this community consultation, we expect the studies to be completed by October 2021.
