The IPWEAvic Goulburn Murray Regional Group met on Friday 24 February 2012 in Kerang.   The delegates were taken on a bus tour of the flood affected regions of the district, in fact, the same tour that was given to Prince William and other high profile visitors.  We viewed the temporary flood levee bank that was constructed by the local football team around the power substation at the height of the flood drama, the damage to the rail line and the area of highway (Murray Valley Highway/Loddon Valley Highway intersection) that was ripped up and used to construct a higher levee bank.   And those from upstream councils were continuously on the lookout for their council signs that had been washed downstream during the flood!  Back at the Gannawarra Council Offices the delegates were treated to a tasty Kerang Sandwich luncheon before presentations on

  • the floods in Gannawarra by David Thompson and Geoff Rollinson,
  • A-Double access trail in Mildura and Swan Hill municipalities in conjunction with VicRoads from Gary Healey from Mildura
  • Rural Roads Review in Campaspe Shire by Jon Aujard
  • IPWEAvic update given by Anne Gibbs

Those wishing ot join the IPWEAvic Goulburn Murray Regional Group and join in the disussions and technical tours of interest in the region should contact Jon Aujard at Campaspe Shire.

Here are some pictures of some delegates on the bus tour and the temporary levee bank at the power station.
