Project Description

Western Creek drains into the Brisbane River at the John Oxley Centre after meandering through the flood prone Brisbane riverside suburbs of Milton and Paddington. Much of the flooding in the suburbs is due to backflows of water from the Brisbane River along Western Creek causing millions of dollars in damage during major flood events. After the 2011 flood event, the Brisbane City Council identified Western Creek as one of several creeks and drains to have backflow prevention devices fitted as part of the “flood proofing” of inner city Brisbane.
