Several potential options to protect the northern Victorian town of Charlton from flooding have been unveiled.
More than 400 homes and businesses were inundated during last year's summer floods.
Last night, about 100 residents were shown five options, including a proposal for a levee bank.
Local councillor David Pollard chaired last night's session and says there were mixed reactions.
"Some people think it'll work, some people are concerned about pushing the water around but the idea of last night was to put information in front of the community and they were given feedback forms to get back to us on which design we've got to start working on to protect Charlton from flooding," he said.
