'Local knowledge' helps form flood planWednesday November 28, 2012 - 10:04 EDT
The Greater Shepparton Council says its new flood plan will make better use of local knowledge.
The council undertook a review of its emergency procedures after the floods earlier this year and a draft version will be on display at a meeting tonight.
Mayor Jenny Houlihan says the new document sets out a series of flood plans for each town.
"With the local knowledge there will be some differences in each one of them but I think that's really important that we don't lose that knowledge so that we can all benefit the next time when something happens," she said.
"We've got specific plans for specific towns with their particular information in it that just suits the consequences that might occur in that particular area."
