Wingecarribee Shire Council engaged Bewsher Consulting Pty Ltd to prepare a Flood Study and a Floodplain Risk Management Study & Plan for two catchments in Bowral: the Mittagong Creek catchment and the “Beavan Place” sub-catchment.
The Mittagong Creek catchment starts to the west of Old South Road, runs under a number of Bowral streets, passes under the railway near the Swimming Centre and travels along the western side of the railway past the Sewerage Treatment Plant before joining the Wingecarribee River.
The study assessed various potential floods and developed plans to mitigate the effects of flooding in Bowral.
The study was completed in 2009 and was adopted by Council.
