3 The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (the Department) has. Flood risk management seeks to reduce the risk from flood events to the people who are located in floodprone areas. As indicated in earlier chapters, there is some level of risk to all locations within the floodplain. The magnitude of that risk is a function of the flood hazard.

The Victorian Floodplain Management Strategy The floodplain management strategy is designed to ensure appropriate response and action is taken in the event of a flood.

A floodplain is an integral part of the stream system. It provides storage capacity for high flows, helps reduce the erosive power of the stream during a flood, reduces the discharge of sediment during high flow periods and helps flood waters to move downstream.Whether you’re a property owner, industry professional, local official, or community, you already can use the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)’s current flood rate insurance maps (FIRMS) to assess your area’s current flood risk.

For help determining future flood risk, preliminary digital versions of the flood insurance rate maps.
