The Wimmera’s flowing tale – with Bob McIlvena

The nature of floods

Wimmera CMA is speaking to various people in the region about what the floods mean to them as part of The Wimmera’s flowing tale – the nature of floods.

First up, Dean Lawson speaks to Bob McIlvena, who for many years oversaw Wimmera-Mallee water management, to get his insight into the nature of Wimmera floods. Bob has spent his lifetime recording the history of water in the region and is writing a new publication detailing the history of floods.
