SES 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.
SES has also developed Municipal Flood Emergency Plans to prepare, respond to and recover from flood events within Municipality.
Monash Council has a history of flooding (riverine and flash flooding) including a significant flood event in 2005. Other significant flood events have occurred in 1987, 1989, 1996 and 2011. Locations at risk of flooding include Glen Waverley, Mount Waverley, Oakleigh East, Chadstone, Ashwood, Oakleigh, Hughesdale, Clayton, Oakleigh South, Mulgrave and Wheelers Hill.
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 their Local Flood Guide or Monash City Council Flood Emergency Plan for more information.
