Donald to hear flood mitigation options

Wednesday February 20, 2013 - 11:06 EDT

Authorities will present the options tonight for new flood defences at Donald in the east Wimmera.

The town, on the Richardson River, was among many in northern Victoria to suffer during the 2011 floods.

The North Central Catchment Management Authority (CMA) and local officials have been working on a flood study of the town.

The CMA's Damian Wells says a recommended package of works will be revealed.
