What are the impacts of wildfire on the hydrology of Sydney's water supply catchments?

The effect of bushfire on Sydney’s water catchments was investigated in a PhD study from Jessica Heath (University of Sydney). Her work showed that the pre‐bushfire models used had predicted the post‐bushfire models well, and that bushfire had no obvious effect on water yield within the Sydney drinking water supply catchments.
