Flood guides loom for Moira ShireThursday January 17, 2013 - 13:04 EDT
Flood guides are almost already for the two most flood-prone towns in the Moira Shire.
Restoration works are continuing across the Moira Shire after the March floods caused more than $40 million worth of damage to local infrastructure.
The Moira Shire Council is also finalising its new flood emergency plan which includes guides for Numurkah and Nathalia residents.
The council's manager of flood recovery, David Booth, says the guides should be ready some time this financial year.
"As part of a three-year program with the SES [State Emergency Service], Moira Shire was made available the opportunity to do flood guides for residents in Numurkah and Nathalia," he said.
"Again, coincidentally, the flood event of March 2012 simply reaffirms the importance of doing that work."
