Share your flood memories to help protect Wangaratta

04 April 2016

Wangaratta residents are being asked to share photos of past flooding as a study of the town’s urban waterways moves to the next phase.

The North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) and Rural City of Wangaratta are jointly reviewing flood mapping for Wangaratta and updating flood intelligence for use in emergency response.

Their investigation will give the Wangaratta community a better understanding of flood risk, which will improve land-use planning, flood emergency planning and response, and community preparation.

A community information session regarding the flood study will be held at Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday 11th May at 10am - 1pm. RSVP by 9th May to Rebecca Damm on 02 6043 7694.

North East CMA Project Officer, Ms Rebecca Damm, is asking locals to share photos of past flood events to help ‘ground truth’ the level and extent of past flooding.
