Studies and Plans
There are currently no official studies or plans for this area. A flood study is currently underway and due for completion in 2021.
Current Works and Projects
Council has engaged specialist flood consultants WMAwater to undertake a detailed Flood Study for Coffs Harbour LGA’s northern coastal catchments, including Corindi River, Arrawarra Creek, Darkum Creek, Willis Creek, Double Crossing Creek Hearnes Lake) and Fiddamans Creek.
The Flood Study is the first stage of the floodplain management process. Its goal is to provide detailed mapping so that Council will have an even better understanding of potential flood risks to assist with future development, planning, community education and mitigation works.
Council is collecting data from the event in late February 2021 to better understand flood behaviour and ultimately inform mitigation options.
