Horsham Wartook Flood Investigation

Since 2016 Wimmera CMA has been conducting the Horsham and Wartook Valley flood investigation. The process has involved two meetings where the community have been able to provide feedback and input into the investigation findings and recommendations. It has also involved a large amount of technical work to understand riverine flood impacts and mitigation options.

As this investigation concludes it is apparent that in some locations there is a change in understanding from previous flood investigations either in depth or extent of flooding.

Following the conclusion of the flood investigation, Horsham Rural City Council will consider applying this information to its Planning Scheme.

To view our improved understanding of flood risk in the region you can:

  • Discuss the study and new mapping directly by calling 03 5382 1544 to arrange a meeting.

  • Download flood investigation maps as pdfs or view the online, interactive flood mapping for your property, where 1% (1 in 100yr) depths are shown:
