The Mallee Catchment Management Authority (MCMA) in conjunction with Buloke Shire Council and Water Technology consulting are developing detailed flood mapping for the Tyrrell and Lalbert Creeks to assist with planning and preparation for future flood events.
A model has been developed to observed historic flood events (September 2010, January 2011 and September 2016) to test that the model is accurate and suitable for this study.
We are now seeking community feedback to improve the flood model and resulting flood maps. and we invite the community to view the modelled historic flood mapping and tell us how it compares to your observations and understanding of flooding
Mapping can be viewed at Water Technology’s online Flood Portal at bit.ly/lalbertandtyrrell or contact Darren Wilson at the MCMA (03) 5051 4377 or email email@example.com to have a copy of flood mapping emailed or hard copy mailed to you.
A copy of the Information Bulletin on this study, can be downloaded here
Community feedback is open until Friday, 24th July 2020.
Next steps for this study will be to use your feedback to finalise the calibration of models. These calibrated models will then be used to simulate a range of possible future flood events
