Brown Hill, Keswick, Glen Osmond and Parklands Creeks are important drainage watercourses in metropolitan Adelaide. The creeks have a history of flooding and a low standard of flood protection, and therefore a relatively high flood risk.
The Brown Hill Keswick Creek Stormwater Project is a collaborative undertaking between the catchment councils to develop and implement a Stormwater Management Plan (SMP) to mitigate serious flood risks and help safeguard properties across the catchment.

Have your say on the proposed works in Parks 16 and 20
Public consultation is now open for the works proposed for South Park Lands.
As part of the works necessary to manage stormwater, mitigate serious flood risks and help safeguard properties across the catchment, the Brown Hill Keswick Creek Stormwater Project is seeking to:
- Construct a wetland at the southern end of Victoria Park/ Pakapakanthi (Park 16)
- Undertake channel works and create low level mounding in Blue Gum Park/ Kurangga (Park 20).
To assist in finalising the design work for both of these initiatives the project is engaging with stakeholders and the community.
