Flood warning network

Wimmera CMA has worked with emergency response agencies and the community to develop the Wimmera Flood Warning Network.

The network consists of radio-telemetry equipment at existing river and rain gauges throughout the Wimmera, linked to the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) and Wimmera CMA offices.  The information is then fed into computer based models that are used to predict the likelihood of flooding that may occur, the extent of the flooding and the timing so as to provide information to emergency services and the community through early warning messages.

The system is under constant review, with all flood investigations considering opportunities for network improvement.
You can find real-time information from these gauges on the BoM website.
