Flood studies

We undertake flood studies to help us understand flooding better and to improve land use planning and emergency response to floods. Flood studies allow us to get more detailed information about flood behavior in a certain area. We develop sophisticated computer models that incorporate local knowledge, anecdotal information and historical information to determine flood extents, depths and velocities for a variety of flood sizes. After a study has been completed we have flood inundation maps and information that can be used by land planners, the community and emergency services staff.

Flood studies

Over the last decade, flood studies have been undertaken at the towns of Traralgon, Rosedale, Seaspray, Warragul, Yarragon, Trafalgar, Moe, Morwell, Sale and Tarwin Lower. Large parts of the flood plains of the Latrobe, Thomson, Macalister and Moe rivers have also had flood studies completed.

Final summary reports for the recently completed flood studies are now available.
