Floodplain in Washpool
Flooding is a natural event. A flood occurs when a pipe, channel, or creek cannot carry the volume of water entering from a catchment.
This results in floodwaters traveling across the land, threatening the safety of people, and potentially damaging property in the floodplain.
This project is based on a dynamic territorial analysis to estimate the extent and behaviour of potential floods arising in the Washpool (Silver Sands) catchment. The new strategies include channel development, terracing, intervention structures that will change the ecological pattern and create new landscape typologies.
In the future, the new landform will improve the floodplain and the management of potential flooding.
