Kutawagan Drainage System Restoration – Hydrologic Study
KGS Group’s Hydraulic Modelling Study and Hydrological Assessment (HMS) of the proposed Kutawagan Drainage System Restoration (KDSR) project. This project, as proposed by the QLWA, consists of undertaking restoration works within the Kutawagan Drainage System such that local runoff could be directed towards Saline Creek instead of the Quill Lakes, in a controlled and environmentally responsible manner, to help mitigate high water levels in the Quill Lakes.
The KDSR project would involve channel excavation works, construction of a water control structure at the spill point, potential upgrades to the Pel Lake Ducks Unlimited control structure, and upgrades or replacements to numerous hydraulic structures and culvert crossings.

KGS Group – Flood Mitigation Report
The Water Security Agency engaged KGS Group Consulting Engineers to produce a flood mitigation report. The report details various flood mitigation options, describes the models used to simulate the options, and provides model results. Each option was evaluated using an evaluation model.
