SES has developed Municipal Storm and Flood Emergency Plans to prepare, respond to and recover from flood events within Municipality.
Formed by the junction of Deep and Jacksons Creeks on the northern boundary of the Municipality, Maribyrnong River is the main waterway that passes through Brimbank City. Kororoit Creek is the second major waterway that flows through the Municipality, passing through roughly the southern half of the City.
Water level rises through Brimbank are expected to occur fairly rapidly following a heavy rainfall event. Flooding on Kororoit, Taylors, Steele & Jones Creeks tends to rise and fall quickly.
The lead time to respond to a flood event may be limited. All households and businesses at risk of flooding should develop an emergency plan and beware of their flood risk.
Households and business should refer to the Brimbank City Council Municipal Storm and Flood Emergency Plan for more information.
