Council Update: Thursday 11 January 2024Greater Shepparton City Council in collaboration with Ethnic Council of Shepparton and District provides a Flood Update, given on evening of Thursday, 11 January at 17:00 hrs.


Thursday 11 January 2024

Water continues to rise slowly in the Goulburn River. The peak is expected at Shepparton during Saturday. The water will remain high for about a day.

The floodwater will be much lower than in 2022.

Most houses and people won’t be affected.

Some properties near rivers and creeks may have flood water in the street – some people could be stuck at home.

Just in case, you can prepare by having food for 3 days, and make sure you have enough prescription medication and baby needs.

If you are cut off by flood waters and need essential food or medication reach out for
support to:

↦ community leaders, neighbours, friends or family
↦ your doctor
↦ Lifeline on 131114 or Beyond Blue on 1300 224 636

Support Payments will only be available if floodwater goes into your house.

Don’t walk or drive into flooded areas. It is dangerous.
