Ridgley Stormwater Investigations Project

Published on 22 June 2018


Council engaged consultant Pitt and Sherry to undertake a drainage study of the Ridgley township.

The aim of the study was to identify local flooding issues and identify opportunities to minimize the effects of the flooding.

The study has been completed and endorsed by Council at the Council Meeting held on 19 June 2018.

Significant flooding was identified at two locations and recommended works are noted in the table below:

Location 1: New 750dia pipe under private property and highway, existing to Cooee Creek, about 75m long.
Location 3: Replace culverts under Ridgley High, railway and Circular Road, excavate new inlet at Community Centre, catch drains at rear of properties on Ridgley Highway.

Funds have been identified in the 2018/19 Capital Works Program to install a new 750mm pipe in the vicinity of 883 Ridgley Highway (Location 1).
