Loddon Shire Council

Flood information for the Loddon Shire Council, encompassing local flood guides and a Municipal Flood Emergency Plan.

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.

VICSES has also developed Municipal Flood Emergency Plans to prepare for, respond to and recover from flood events within the Municipality.

 

Flood history

The Loddon Shire is located on a flood plain and is therefore subject to flooding from time to time, while engineering strategies
have been implemented within some towns to reduce the impact of flooding. Flooding throughout the Loddon river district is
characterised by large expanses of slow moving water, and due to the extremely flat terrain even minor flooding can inundate
areas within the region.

The lead time to respond to a flood event may be limited. All households and businesses at risk of flooding should develop an
emergency plan and be aware of their flood risk.
