Arundel, Biggera Creek Dam - flood resilience works

Commencing: August 2019
Completion: November 2019

Project information

The Biggera Creek Dam is located within Collingwood Court Reserve, approximately 200 metres west of Olsen Avenue in Arundel. It provides an important flood mitigation function for the Biggera Creek catchment, which stretches from Parkwood through to Runaway Bay.

Works are required to ensure the ongoing flood resilience of the dam.

Construction details

Earthworks are required to create additional capacity within the dam’s flood storage basin.

Some sections of Collingwood Court Reserve will be closed off temporarily during construction. The park and surrounding areas will remain open, including the dog off-lead and skate park areas.

We will ensure disruptions are kept to a minimum. However, local residents may notice construction noise at times. Works will take place between 6.30am and 5pm from Monday to Friday.

Benefits for the community

  • effective operation of the Biggera Creek Dam during severe weather events
  • improved flood resilience for properties and roads in the Biggera Creek Dam catchment.
