VICSES 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.
We have also developed Municipal Flood Emergency Plans to prepare for, respond to and recover from flood events within the Municipality.
Swan Hill Rural City Council has a history of flooding including a significant flood event in the Robinvale area in 1956 and as recent as 2010 which impacted the township of Robinvale and vast extents of rural areas resulting in extensive damage.
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 be aware of their flood risk.
Households and businesses should refer to their Local Flood Guide or Municipal Flood Emergency Plan for more information.
