Water Flooding GBCMA

Have your say on Goulburn and Broken flood studies

05 February 2018

Residents have a chance to contribute to the formation of local flood studies for the Goulburn and Broken areas this month.

The Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (GBBCMA) will be holding a series of drop in sessions over the month of February and interested local residents are encouraged to attend.

Member for Euroa and Deputy Leader of The Nationals Steph Ryan said the study was designed to improve the GBCMA’s understanding and planning for a 100-year flood.

“These drop in sessions are an opportunity for locals to share their own knowledge of flood events or close encounters over recent years,” Ms Ryan said.

“It is important the catchment management authority hears about how our communities are affected in times of flooding and extreme rain events.

“I encourage anyone interested to try and make it to one of the drop in sessions.”

Work is commencing on a flood study for the Broken River floodplain (Lake Nillahcootie to East Goulburn Main  Channel), Goulburn River floodplain (Lake Eildon to Toolamba (Bridge/Union Road), rural areas (excludes Benalla, Seymour, Murchison and Shepparton) and large floods.
