Emergency Management

What you need to know before, during & after an emergency

Whiteheads Creek Flood Study

Over the past 18 months, Council has been working with the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (GBCMA) to conduct a detailed flood study of the Whiteheads Creek and its tributaries around the Seymour township.

Aim of the Study

  • Help Council and the GBCMA better understand the flooding characteristics of the Whiteheads Creek
  • Help to better inform future planning and development decisions for Seymour’s future growth
  • To assist with Emergency Management Planning throughout the Whiteheads Creek Catchment

Next Steps

The work so far has produced a detailed set of draft flood maps that are ready for community input.

Drop-in sessions have been scheduled to give the community the opportunity to provide feedback into the draft maps, and provide the study with local knowledge of historic flooding events.

This input will be invaluable in enabling the study to gather the necessary information for verification and finalisation of the study towards the end of 2017.
