Flood information at your fingertips

Friday 28 August, 2020
Free, regularly updated information to help with land-use planning, flood preparedness and flood insurance is now available for 14 communities across the Goulburn Broken region.

The Goulburn Broken Community Flood Intelligence Portal, developed in collaboration with Greater Shepparton City, Benalla Rural City, Moira Shire and Strathbogie Shire councils, can be found here or via the councils’websites.

“Users can navigate to points of interest, interrogate a range of flood maps showing different magnitudes of flooding or by gauge heights, or search by address and generate a property flood information report based on the latest available data,” Goulburn Broken CMA’s  Guy Tierney said.

Communities included on the portal include Shepparton, Mooroopna, Numurkah, Nagambie, Benalla, Tatura, Murchison, Merrigum, Euroa, Violet Town, Buxton, Taggerty, Marysville and the Acheron Valley.

“These sites were chosen because of the rich amount of flood information we have for them obtained from detailed flood studies carried out over the years,” Mr Tierney said.

“As flood studies are completed and updated and information becomes available about other communities, links will be added to the portal.

”Mr Tierney said the main aim of the portal was to provide flood-risk information to improve communities’ flood resilience.

“The portal will also be helpful for property developers, insurance brokers and people wanting to buy or build a new home in these areas,” he said.

The portal includes a user guide, glossary and an easy-to-use interactive map and was developed using the HydroNET platform, which provides 4000 water and weather professionals in 12 countries with integrated online water management solutions.

The Goulburn Broken CMA acknowledges and respects First Nations people and the deep connection they have with their land and waters.

We acknowledge the Yorta Yorta and Taungurung people and their ancestors/forbears as Traditional Owners of the land and waters in the Goulburn Broken Catchment (and beyond). We value our ongoing partnerships with Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation and Taungurung Land and Waters Council for the health of Country and its people.

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge and recognise the primacy of Traditional Owners obligations, rights and responsibilities to use and care for their traditional lands and waters.
