ICC Consultants WRM displayed Flood Modelling and diagrams for both the Guilfoyles Gully Catchment (East of Walloon), and the Rohl Rd Catchment (West of Walloon) along with flooding photos, at the Uniting Church on Saturday morning 1.5.2010.

The study is determine flood levels along major drainage paths and how these are to be managed by future developments planned for the Walloon area. Over 50 submissions have already been received along with many residents photos.

Although the study is designed to ensure proper planning for future development it also uncovered several localised areas that we need to visit also. The flood event of November 2008 certainly gave us new information and flood levels not experienced since the 1974 Floods.
