Flood and Risk Studies
Southern Downs Regional Council is undertaking Flood and Risk Studies for the catchments of Condamine River and Tributaries (Dalrymple Creek, Canal Creek), as well as a Flood Study for Quart Pot Creek. The Studies will measure the nature and extent of the existing flooding conditions, understand the potential implications as a result of future climatic conditions, evaluate options that could potentially be implemented to better manage the existing, future, and continued flood risk, and reduce the community’s exposure to flooding from catchment rainfall runoff.
The studies will also seek to achieve holistic catchment and region-wide outcomes and set a blueprint for flood risk management studies in the region.
Council thanks the community for their contributions to this flood study. The final studies are due for publication in late 2024.
Previous Flood Studies
In 2014, Southern Downs Regional Council commissioned Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) to carry out a Flood Studies and Flood Risk Management Study of the Condamine River and its tributaries (within the SDRC area), Leyburn and Stanthorpe.
