PLANNING HAS BEGUN FOR A NEW CORANGAMITE REGIONAL FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT STRATEGY


The rains have come, the rivers have risen, and the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (CMA) wants to hear about your experiences with local flooding. The Corangamite CMA is working with the Victorian SES and the nine local governments in the Corangamite region to develop a Corangamite Regional Floodplain Management Strategy (RFMS). Local knowledge is critical to understanding flood behaviour and options for flood mitigation. Community information will be integral to the development of the RFMS and setting regional and local priorities for flood management.

 

Complete our online survey and go in the running for a $50 Coles voucher.To complete the survey go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/F2XVGYV the survey link will be open until the 18th December 2016 and winners of the $50 Coles vouchers will be drawn and announced the following week.

FACES OF LANDCARE - CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF LANDCARE IN CORANGAMITE

It is with great pride that we launch the Faces of Landcare publication marking 30 years of Landcare in Corangamite.

Celebrating this significant milestone, achieving 30 years of Landcare, provides an
opportunity for us to reflect on the impressive achievements of all those involved.

As the stories captured in this book indicate Landcare means many different things to many different people, from those just establishing their group to thosewho have played a major role in Landcare’s foundation in locations all across the Corangamite catchment.


But underlying the contrasting motivations for those involved in Landcare is a
commitment to sustainable land management for future generations. And the
opportunity to get together to learn and share knowledge with like-minded people.

Thank you all Landcare volunteers for their contribution to this publication.

WE NEED YOUR FLOOD INFORMATION!

Thompsons Creek 14th Septemeber 2016

With so much water around our catchment, we are out and about taking photos but we can’t get everywhere so we are asking the community for help. Please send through any photos and videos by email to floodinfo@ccma.vic.gov.au and include the location, time and date if possible. This information will help us with future flood planning – Thank you!

LATEST NEWS

GELLIBRAND SUMMER FLOWS IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

Low summer flows in the Gellibrand River have been identified as a risk to the ecological values of the river such as fish populations. The Western Region Sustainable Water Strategy (Victorian Government, 2011) identified improving the environmental flows to the Gellibrand River as a priority action.

The largest extractions from the Gellibrand are for urban use. Wannon Water are working with DELWP, the Corangamite CMA and Southern Rural Water on a project that aims to improve the ecological health of the Gellibrand River by increasing flows in the river over summer.
