A public meeting to get community ideas on the flood problem in our local creeks will be held on Monday February 18 at 6.30 pm at the Castlemaine Town Hall.
The meeting is being held by the Catchment Management Authority, the Shire Council and GHD, a firm of water industry experts. It’s part of the process of developing a flood management plan for Castlemaine, Campbell’s Creek and Chewton. The process has been funded by the State Government in response to recent flood events.
Readers will remember that there was some controversy during recent floods about whether vegetation along creeks increases water levels. Our posts on this can be found here and here.
