Wangaratta Local Flood Guide
Four main waterways can cause flooding in Wangaratta.
They are the Ovens River, the King River, the One Mile Creek (part of the Fifteen Mile Creek System) and the Three Mile Creek (also part of the Fifteen Mile Creek system).
Flooding in the Fifteen Mile, One Mile and/or Three Mile Creeks can happen separately to flooding in the Ovens and/or King Rivers. This means different parts of Wangaratta can be at risk depending on where floodwater is coming from.
In floods, knowing what to do and when to do it can save lives and reduce damage. This guide provides advice to residents and businesses about what to do before, during and after floods, where to find flood warnings and areas that are at risk.
