Moonee Valley City Council

Flood information for the Moonee Valley City Council, encompassing local flood guides and a Municipal Flood Emergency Plan.

Moonee Valley MapSES 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 each Municipality.
