Euroa electorate flood risk
30 November 2017
I wish to draw the house's attention to the very real prospect of flooding across my region over this weekend. I am deeply concerned about the prospect for very real impacts on communities like Benalla and Seymour and down that Hume corridor. I do note with some concern the slow progress on a number of flood mitigation works like the Seymour flood levy and the decommissioning of Lake Mokoan, which many Benalla people are concerned will exacerbate the next serious flood. I do note certainly and put on record my thanks to the Minister for Emergency Services, who has agreed today to brief opposition members on the likely impacts of a significant rainfall event that is likely to come this weekend.
