Flood resilient guideline to retrofitting your home

Melbourne Water

Melbourne Water in collaboration with the City of Port Phillip have launched an easy-to-follow guide for homeowners who have experienced flooding and want to reduce the impacts of future flood events. The guide demonstrates how homeowners can retrofit their home to save long-term costs by avoiding temporary relocation and repairs.

The guide covers planning issues, insurance and flood resilient design, strategies to flood resilience and design examples. 

We recommend Local Government share the guidelines widely with their communities.

You can access the guide from the Melbourne Water website Being prepared for flooding page
