We are working with Melbourne Water, City of Port Phillip, City of Glen Eira and City of Kingston to manage flooding in the Elster Creek catchment area. An action plan has been developed.
The Elster Creek catchment area floods when rainfall runoff exceeds the capacity of underground and surface drainage systems, and waterways. Storm surges and king tides also contribute to flooding. Climate change and infill development may increase the frequency and impact of flooding. The City of Port Phillip is hosting information regarding the catchment on behalf of the organisations within the catchment.
