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 Storm and Flood Emergency Plans to prepare, respond to and recover from flood events within each Municipality.
One of the main waterways in the Wyndham Municipality is Lollypop Creek. The urban characteristic of the area also means that rain water is not easily absorbed and tends to run off towards lower lying areas such as the Creek.
During high intensity rainfall the amount of run off can lead to stormwater drains overflowing, causing flash flooding.
Flash flooding occurs with little warning, only lasts a short time and can cause severe localised damage.
