Pyrenees Shire Flood Investigations

Pyrenees Shire Council has undertaken a detailed flood investigation for Beaufort, and preliminary flood studies for Lexton, Waubra and Raglan.


As a result of these preliminary findings and recommendations, Council is currently undertaking detailed flood investigations for Mt Emu, Raglan and the Upper Avoca River catchment.

The objectives of these flood investigations are to:

  • Identify any information gaps and arrange for survey or other data gathering to fill the identified gaps.
  • Increase understanding of the nature of flooding within affected towns and rural areas, both among the community and emergency response agencies
  • Reduce community flood-related risk and therefore reduce flood-related damages and reduce threats to life and property
  • Identify community preferred options for structural flood mitigation and undertake subsequent feasibility study and cost benefit analysis of options
  • Increase confidence that decisions and advice regarding flooding and future development in affected towns and rural areas are appropriate and equitable in terms of long-term community wellbeing.
