Residents are invited to share their experiences of flooding in the City of Greater Geelong’s largest urban catchment.

Memories and imagery will be used to inform a new flood study of the Rippleside Catchment, which includes the suburbs of North Geelong, Rippleside, Drumcondra, Geelong West, Manifold Heights, Herne Hill and Hamlyn Heights.

The study will help The City and relevant authorities to better understand the flood risks and stormwater management opportunities in the 770 hectare catchment.

Flood studies improve land use planning, emergency response, and community preparedness.

We are asking residents and business and property owners to locate their areas of interest on the map below, view the information and share experiences of flooding.
