Flood information for the Corangamite Council, encompassing local flood guides for Skipton and the Corangamite Shire Municipal Flood Emergency Plan.

Corangamite map 2.jpgSES has developed Local Flood Guides to explain local flood risks for communities at risk. This includes advice for communities on how to prepare and respond to flood events and who to contact in the event of a flood.
