Official flood warnings are provided by the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) and the SES is the lead agency for any emergency response. Always check their websites first for information about flood warnings and preparedness. Council’s main role is managing infrastructure and services impacted by floodwater. We also play a role in supporting the emergency management process. During such times, SES is the lead agency, and we will take their directives.
Should evacuation be required, please check back here for details.
During the 2022 floods, an Evacuation Centre was opened at the stadium to support the region, including Deniliquin, Moama, Barham and smaller villages with:
- Registration of evacuated people,
- Supply of beds, meals, toilets, first aid, counselling and support services,
- Companion and larger animal shelter
PREPARATION AND PLANNING
If you live in flood-prone areas, ensure you have a flood plan up to date and ready to implement it if required.
During flood events, things can change quickly, so be sure to stay informed, look out for each other and know who to call!
