Gwawley Bay Floodplain Management Study and Plan
The Gwawley Bay Floodplain Management Study assesses flooding problems within this urban catchment, and investigates various floodplain management measures to reduce these problems where possible. The study is being undertaken by Bewsher Consulting for Sutherland Shire Council. The study also has the support of the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water and the State Emergency Service.
The catchment drains to Gwawley Bay and the Georges River, on the southern side of Sydney. A smaller catchment on the eastern side of Taren Point Road is also included in the study area. The catchment is located within Sutherland Shire Council, and includes Sylvania Waters and parts of the surrounding suburbs of Sylvania, Taren Point, Caringbah, Miranda and Gymea. A map of the study area is shown below.
