Council commenced the Teesdale Flood Study in August 2022 to determine the potential impacts of riverine flooding in Teesdale from Native Hut Creek and a key tributary and provide more accurate flood mapping in the township.
Since community consultation was conducted in August 2022, initial flood maps have been developed.
The Teesdale Flood Study is supported by the Victorian Government, with $162,700 from the Risk and Resilience Grants Program through Emergency Management Victoria. The program is jointly funded by the Australian Government in partnership with the States and Territories under the National Partnership Agreement for Disaster Risk Reduction.
Residents in Teesdale were invited to provide feedback on initial flood maps developed as part of the Teesdale Flood Study at an information session held at the Teesdale Community Hall on Thursday 9 March, 2023 from 4 to 6pm.
What Happens Next
Input provided by Teesdale residents will be used to inform the Teesdale Flood Study, which is expected to be presented to Council in early 2023.
