Flood planning and emergency management in Victoria.

Flood planning and emergency management in Victoria.

Following our contributions to flood response in September and December last year, Water Technology is again assisting the Victorian SES in flood planning and emergency management for the current floods in north central and western Victoria. Staff from the Melbourne office have been located at SES control centers in Bendigo and Geelong. Water Technology staff are well placed to assist in flood response across Victoria having prepared regional flood modelling over the past 15 years for the following towns and catchments:
