Sunday Creek Flood study

About the project

The Sunday Creek catchment is situated in the central Victorian district and covers approximately 980Km2; nearly a third of the Mitchell Shire Council land area.
This flood study, a collaborative effort by Mitchell Shire Council and the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (GBCMA), seeks to enhance our understanding of flood risks in the Sunday Creek community.

What's happened so far

In March 2019, we embarked on our initial round of community consultation. We invited residents to share photos, stories, and records, aiding in our comprehension of local flooding patterns. These contributions have been instrumental in refining our flood models and generating precise flood maps for our region.

Following the 2019 consultations, we revised our study to incorporate these community insights. We also conducted simulations based on the significant flood event of 2022, enriching our models with contemporary scientific research and actual observations from the event.
