Flood Information

The Nepean River, South Creek, tributaries thereof and associated floodplains are a predominant feature of the Camden Local Government Area. Flooding along these waterways impacts upon properties within the floodplain to varying degrees. 

Flood information within the Camden Local Government Area has been broken into three main catchments; these being the Nepean River (excluding Narellan Creek), Narellan Creek and South Creek. A labelled catchment map is available to show the three catchment areas and to demonstrate which suburbs are located within each.

Prior to the adoption of the South Creek Flood Study in 2011 and the newly adopted Nepean River Flood Study in 2015, flood information within the Camden LGA was taken from flood studies created in the early to mid 1990's. Currently, some flood information for the Narellan Creek catchment is still based off various flood studies from the early 2000's. Hence, it is important that this information is suitably updated to ensure information is up to date with current best practice standards and recent catchment development.
