The Southern Area Floodplain Committee provides advice to Council about issues in the Brooks Creek Catchment area.

A Flood Study, Floodplain Risk Management Study and Floodplain Risk Management Plan were completed in 2010. At that time, Brooks Creek was considered with the Mullet Creek catchment. They are now being treated as separate catchments.

The latest update to the Brooks Creek Flood Study was adopted by Council in June 2018. You can read the report for the study on the SES Flood Data website.
