About the Project
This project was to review and improve the current flood mapping for the major waterways in and around the city of Wangaratta. The last comprehensive review of flood data and modelling was undertaken in 2000. There has since been considerable residential and commercial development throughout Wangaratta.
This project was required to expand the coverage and range of flood mapping for Wangaratta, including an assessment of a range of flood magnitudes.
