Campaspe Shire and Murray River councils are urging residents to review and make comment on Murray River flood modelling developed as part of the Echuca Moama Torrumbarry Flood Study.
Campaspe Shire Mayor, Cr Adrian Weston said the Flood Study project started in November 2017, headed by representatives from Murray River Council, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, North Central Catchment Management Authority and Campaspe Shire Council. A community reference group was set up last year, to secure local knowledge to feed into the study.
“The community reference group has been supporting development of the flood modelling, capturing local knowledge from the 1993, 2011 and 2016 flood events,” Cr Weston said.
“This has produced interactive mapping where residents can now go online to see where flood waters went and the extent of flooding.”
