Charlton flood mitigation options revealed by government data

Key points: More than 90 per cent of Melbourne water systems are built for the most extreme events of the past century

Flood mitigation options are available for Melbourne’s major flood areas

The State Government said water infrastructure would 바카라be reviewed again if required but did not provide a timeline for updating the tool.

Victoria Water has released flood mitigation options for major flood events and recommends that any projects would need a community agreement from at least four communities, which is mandatory to avoid having to negotiajarvees.comte with one of them.

The tool was developed under the Planning Act which provides for the making of the National Flood Insurance Register.

The tool tracks which water systems in Melbourne are required to cope with flooding and the communities the companies are responsible for serving.

A total of 818 systems are listed in Victoria at an estimated cost of $1.2 billion, with a further 30 systems required to be identified.

The state revealed the tool was created to save lives, but it has been criticised by residents and other policyholders as ineffective.

The flood information tool can be downloaded on Melbourne’s government website.

Mr Wicks said many of the communities in Victoria have already been warned of the risk of Melbourne’s rising temperatures and rainfall.

“We understand it is a very complicated system, it has been designed to be more affordable and easier for people to manage.

“We see there are a lot of people out there now who may not be as familiar with that technology but know it is available if they just ask themselves whether it’s useful for their situation.”
