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.
City of Greater Bendigo and VICSES are also developing a Municipal Flood Emergency Plan to prepare for, respond to and recover from flood events.
The North Central Catchment Management Authority (CMA) in partnership with the City of Greater Bendigo and VICSES has undertaken an extensive flood study for the urban areas of Bendigo and surrounds.
You can access this information on their website or visit them in person at 628-634 Midland Highway, Huntly, 3551 or call (03) 5448 7124
City of Greater Bendigo Council has a long history of storm and flash flooding with varying impact, from small urban pockets to whole suburbs and outlying areas affected.
The lead time to respond to a storm and flash flooding events may be limited. All households and businesses at risk of flooding should develop an emergency plan and be aware of their flood risk.
