Flood Modelling & Floodplain Management

Tennant Creek Stormwater Investigation

Drainage characteristics in Tennant Creek are complex, particularly during large flow events

The key challenge was to develop an understanding of the drainage behaviour and limitations of the Tennant Creek network

Kilgariff Flood and Stormwater Management Plan

The site is affected by regional flooding from the Todd River

The key challenge was to define a drainage strategy that was sympathetic to the local environment

Katherine Flood and Flood Mitigation Studies

The key challenge for this project was to identify cost-effective flood risk management measures

The flood modelling showed that it is possible to significantly reduce flooding of properties in Katherine during smaller more frequent floods

Kalkarindji and Daguragu Floodplain Mapping Study

Kalkarindji is a growing major remote township

The NT Government wanted to identify flood-free land within the Kalkarindji township and environs

Borroloola Floodplain Mapping Study

Borroloola has a long history of flooding from the McArthur River

The study results assisted the NT Government to develop safer and more resilient communities

Adelaide River Town Flood Study

A comprehensive flood study and impact assessment of the Mackenzie River

The flood model results were used to identify the existing flood risk and flood hazards throughout the Adelaide River town

Mackenzie River Flood Study

A comprehensive flood study and impact assessment of the Mackenzie River

The results of the modelling studies were used in detailed design of the proposed levee

Mackay Ring Road

A major infrastructure planning study for the Mackay Ring Road

The completed report considered all potential impacts including flooding and community concerns

Pioneer River

Estimation of design flood discharges and flood levels along the Pioneer River

A comprehensive set of flood depth and hazard maps was developed for a range of design events

Maules Creek Coal Project

EIS Surface Water Impact Assessment and Water Management Plan

Assessment of site drainage, site water balance, flood impacts and water monitoring program
