Council flood study on track

A STUDY researching flood data and impacts commissioned by the Central Highlands Regional Council is on track to be completed by the end of September.

Geoff Kavanagh of C and R presented an overview of his initial findings to the council on Monday on work being done to capture flood data in the Nogoa catchment upstream of the Fairbairn Dam.

The information from C and R has come from discussions with landholders in the Nogoa and Comet River catchment areas and consultation with agencies such as the council and the Bureau of Meteorology and records from previous flood events.

“The report will also include data including photos from previous floods, impacts on the environment, timing of the river rises and other valuable information,” Mayor Peter Maguire said. “It will provide us with a solid historical record, but more importantly help us all, through sharing the information with key agencies such as BOM, to forecast impacts of weather events more accurately in the future.”
