Will the creek restoration make the flooding worse?

No, the work will not make flooding worse. During the design of the project, flood modelling is used to identify any problems. We ‘test’ the design and how it would work through different levels of flooding.

Will any trees be removed?

Yes, as part of this work will need to remove some trees and dense vegetation within the creek. The naturalisation of work will include planting hundreds of local native plants which will significantly improve the local environment.

Who is responsible for the maintenance of the creek?

Ongoing maintenance will be done by Sydney Water. The cycle path will be owned and maintained by Blacktown City Council.
