VICSES has developed Local Flood Guides to explain local flood risks for communities at risk. This includes advice for communities on how to prepare and respond to flood events and who to contact in the event of a flood.
We have also developed Municipal Flood Emergency Plans to prepare for, respond to and recover from flood events within the Municipality.
Gannawarra Shire Council has a history of flooding including a significant flood event in January 2011 which impacted the townships of Qumabatook and Kerang and vast extents of rural areas resulting in extensive damage.
The two key river systems which impact the Gannawarra Shire areas are the Loddon River and the Avoca including the January 2011 events and the 1983 event.
Households and businesses should refer to their Local Flood Guide or the Gannawarra Shire Flood Emergency Plan for more information.
