Wingecarribee Shire Council engaged Cardno Lawson Treolar Engineering Consultants to undertake a flood study of the Burradoo Catchment BU2.
The catchment covers an area of 244 hectares and stretches from the ridgeline to the west of Eridge Park Road, centring on the intersection of Moss Vale Road and Holy Road; it then crosses Burradoo Road near the Yean Street intersection before outletting under the railway just north of Burradoo Station to join Mittagong Creek.
The study assessed potential flood behaviour in the catchment. The flood study was the first step towards the overall Floodplain Risk Management process in accordance with the NSW Floodplain Development Manual. The flood study was completed and adopted by Council in 2011. The Floodplain Risk Management Study for the Burradoo catchment BU2 is in progress and is expected to be complete in 2013.
