Flood Management


Flooding can happen at any time after heavy rains, even days after rains within the City of Whittlesea.

This Municipal Flood Emergency Plan is a sub plan to our Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP), and is consistent with the Emergency Management Manual Victoria and the Victoria Flood Management Strategy. It takes into account the outcomes of the Community Emergency Risk Assessment process undertaken by the Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee(MEMPC).

The Municipal Flood Emergency Plan is consistent with the Regional Flood Emergency Plan and the State Flood Emergency Plan and is a result of the cooperative efforts of the City of Whittlesea MEMPC and its member agencies.
