Council hopes photos will flood in for study

GLADSTONE Regional Council is seeking residents' help to gather information on flood levels reached in specific catchment areas during the 2011 and 2013 flood events.

Before undertaking the Agnes Water flood study, limited drain clearing and a topographical survey will be carried out in Agnes Creek from September to October.

In addition to these flood studies, the council will soon benefit from the completion of a Barney Point flood study and finalisation of the Gladstone Region Urban Stormwater Open Management Plan.

Mayor Gail Sellers said the council was interested in receiving copies of photographs and information relating to Agnes Water, Calliope River and Auckland Creek catchments.

"Council is undertaking separate flood studies for several catchments across the region, and information gathered will be used as historical reference and documented in council's mapping system," Cr Sellers said.

"These flood studies will provide council with the ability to determine a range of flood levels, including an accurate Q100 flood line level as a base to support sound planning decisions in the future."

Photos can be emailed to info@gladstonerc.qld.gov.au or posted to Mark Cochrane, PO Box 29, Gladstone Qld 4680.
