Council has been working with Melbourne Water to develop an updated flood map of Maroondah. This map will inform how Council manages its stormwater maintenance program, emergency management planning and capital works projects. It will also assist us in assessing future development across Maroondah.

We have created an informative video to provide an overview of flood mapping in Maroondah:


What does this mean?

Significant rainfall events are becoming more common. Council’s stormwater drainage network is designed to cater for the majority of storm events, however in significant events the capacity of Council’s stormwater drainage network can be exceeded, leading to stormwater flowing over land, along roads, through reserves and through private property depending on the landscape of the surrounding land.

Council endeavours to minimise the impact of over land flow paths on private property and dwellings where possible. Understanding the areas affected is critical to reducing the impact of flooding on the community and will assist both Council and residents to prepare and plan for future developments and infrastructure improvement works.
