Council is always interested in your flood data. Photos and evidence of major flood events in our region will allow Council to verify and improve our flood predictions and improve the safety of our floodplains.
Council would appreciate if residents can provide flood information by completing the following form. The more specific you can be about the time and location of the flood, the more valuable it will be. So please be as specific as possible and if you have photos please upload them too.
If you have information on more than one flood event please submit the information separately.

Flood event photos
If you took photos of the event, please upload them using this form. Please follow these guidelines to ensure your images are usable:
- Please provide a clear flood reference point. A flood reference point is a fixed point, that can be seen on the photo, that will enable Council to estimate the maximum height the flood reached at the location. Examples of photos with reference points: example 1, example 2.
- Please ensure that photos have been resized / cropped / optimised to be less than 500KB in file size.
- Photos can only be accepted in JPEG (.jpg) format.
- Please provide up to a maximum of three photos per flood event.
A free online photo editor such as Pixlr may be useful for formatting and annotating your images.
If either of these cases apply Council will contact you to obtain this information.
