Burwood Council have engaged flood consultants WMAwater to carry out a Flood Study for the Exile Bay, St Lukes and William Street Catchment Areas . An important feature of the flood study is community consultation, which aims at informing the public on the progress of the project and allows the identification of community concerns as well as an opportunity to provide information on previous flooding experiences. Flood marks and photographs from previous flood events are of particular interest. This information will be used in computer modelling of flood behaviour in the catchments.

Residents living within the area of interest will receive a newsletter and questionnaire to be returned by the 6th November 2015 (also available for download here). Residents that do not receive a newsletter and questionnaire may still submit a response with flood information to the following:
