The draft Echuca Moama Flood Study Report is the first part of the Echuca Moama Torrumbarry Flood Study and Risk Management Plan Project. It has been prepared to better understand flood behaviour of the Murray, Campaspe and Goulburn River systems and their impact on the Echuca-Moama area.

Commenced in 2018, the flood study is a joint project between Campaspe Shire and Murray River councils, in conjunction with the Victorian North Central Catchment Management Authority, Department of Environment Energy and Climate Action, and NSW Department of Planning and Environment.

The report consists of detailed modelling and mapping that reproduces the flooding associated with the 1993, 2011, 2016 and 2022 flood events.

The primary objective of the report is to define the existing nature and extent of flood behaviour in and around the township of Echuca-Moama. The final document will be an important guide to ensure safe and sustainable development across the two towns.
