Flood guides are almost complete for Numurkah and Nathalia.KAITLIN THALS January 31, 2013 4:10am
Flood guides are almost complete for Numurkah and Nathalia — the two most flood-prone towns in Moira Shire.
Following the March 2012 floods, the shire’s flood recovery manager David Booth said the guides would indicate whether residents were located in a flood-prone area.
Mr Booth said the document had never existed within the shire and could be referred to for up to 20 years.
‘‘If you are subject to inundation, then there will be steps for you to prepare. You can protect your property and refer to the emergency management steps, or what to do if you decide to leave your property in times of emergency,’’ he said.
Mr Booth said road restoration was continuing across the shire — with 25 per cent of damaged roads repaired — after floods caused more than $40
He said most repair work could be completed within six months and reminded residents to be aware of machinery on the roads during this time.
Mr Booth said Moira Shire Council’s new flood emergency plan and township plans were being reviewed with the assistance of the State Emergency Service, which includes guides for Numurkah and Nathalia residents.
He said flood study tender submissions had been assessed and a report would be presented at next month’s council meeting recommending a preferred consultant.
‘‘Once appointed, we will work with the consultant to call a public meeting and form a technical working group focused on hydrology of the flood and a community working group,’’ Mr Booth said.
