Brushy Creek forms part of the north eastern boundary of Maroondah, with flows from the Creekand its associated drains passing through Croydon and Croydon North, entering the Yarra River in the City of Manningham.

Flows along the Yarra can have a great impact on the ability of waters form Brushy Creek to enter the Yarra.

High intensity, short duration rainfall events can cause local flash flooding in Croydon and Croydon North, particularly around Lincoln Road Drain and Warrien Road Main Drain affecting residences and public land.
