Flood Management Strategy for Port Phillip and Westernport

Melbourne Water


The Flood Management Strategy for Port Phillip and Westernport sets the 10-year direction for flood management in the region.

The strategy is guided by a collective vision, objectives and 10-year outcomes. Under each outcome, the strategy identifies key focus areas which will guide our actions. The strategy will be delivered by partners that have flood management responsibilities, including:

  • local and state government
  • water authorities
  • emergency services

Partners will take a collaborative approach and work together to plan for, avoid and reduce flood risks while supporting emergency preparation and response.
