Share this:


Thank you to all community members who have contributed to the development of the Inverleigh Flood Study. We have finalised the draft Inverleigh Flood Study which is located below.



The Inverleigh Flood Study provides a detailed assessment of the Inverleigh township flood plain where flooding may impact upon residents, properties and infrastructure. Council has contracted Water Technology Consultants to undertake a Flood Investigation of the Leigh and Barwon Rivers at Inverleigh. State Government funding was available to develop the Inverleigh Flood Study and Inverleigh Flood Study Video.
