Coomera State School Flood Study

Burchills was commissioned by QLD Government via MPN Civil Engineers to undertake a flood study for a new state school proposed in Coomera, QLD. The site is significantly flood affected and the development proposal including significant modification to the major flood flow path traversing the site. An XP-RAFTS model of total catchment of 3.3 km2 of was developed to produce design flood flow hydrographs. The local watercourse traversing the site was modelled in TUFLOW. The development infill resulted in significant impacts to adjoining properties and resultant hazards. Burchills assisted MPN with developing a flood mitigation solution for the site to alleviate flood exacerbation.
