What do we know about managing floods?

A key to Warrnambool’s success lies in its proximity to an abundance of water.
Historically, the Merri and Hopkins rivers provided drinking water, the port provided access and reliable rainfall made fertile soils productive.
In the 21st century Warrnambool continues to grow with an extra 10,000 people expected to call the city home by 2036.
This means the addition of about 200 new homes each year with the largest growth in housing stock near the Hopkins River to the east and the Merri River and Russells Creek to the north and west.
This has implications for flood management.
Warrnambool City Council is working with Utilis Consulting to develop a Floodplain Management Plan to consolidate all the existing information, and provide direction on future areas of investment for flood investigations, planning, mitigation and adaptation projects.
The project group is interested find out how people view the threat of flooding and what should be done about it.
