The commission was to carry out drainage analysis and hydraulic modelling broken down into networks of the existing piped drainage system surrounding Nicklin Way from Tokara Canal to the Mooloolah River.
The need for the analysis resulted from customer complaints in regards to flooding adjacent to and along Nicklin Way during the March 2012 rain events.
The work was carried out progressively in 4 phases to best meet Council’s needs as follows:
Phase 1 – Data Compilation and Preliminary Catchment Plan
Phase 2 – Ground Truthing – Plan Finalisation of Existing Network
Phase 3 – Commencement of Existing Network Analysis
Phase 4 - Potential network improvements.
