Campbelltown Flood Study +
CSS was engaged by Campbelltown City Council to prepare a detailed flood study for the Campbelltown Locality. The purpose of the flood study was to define flood behaviour for existing and future conditions. In accordance with the requirements of the NSW Government's Floodplain Development Manual (2005), both mainstream and overland flooding needed to be considered as part of the study.
CSS were engaged by the Sydney Metropolitan CMA to complete subcatchment delineation for the Lower Parramatta River, Lane Cove River and Middle Harbour catchments, which occupy approximately 350 km2 of the Sydney urban area. The project was completed as part of the Sydney Harbour Water Quality Improvement Plan.
CSS was engaged by the Sydney Metropolitan CMA to prepare Catchment Pollutant Export Models (CPEM) for the Upper and Lower Parramatta River catchments. The CPEM were developed for the Sydney Harbour Water Quality Improvement Plan using the Source Catchments software.
CSS were engaged by The Hills Shire Council to map all urban overland flow path alignments in The Hills Shire Council LGA. The purpose of the study was to help identify all allotments that may be traversed by an urban overland flow path and which may be subject to a flood-related development controls (i.e., flood control lots).
CSS were engaged as subconsultants by The Balmoral Group USA, to complete the hydrologic and hydraulic analysis for the proposed upgrade of the Fannie Road Bridge crossing of Big Escambia Creek in Escambia County, Florida.
