Keeping the community informed about flood preparation

Published on 01 February 2017


The City of Swan and Town of Bassendean will be hosting a free flood information workshop on Wednesday 12 April at Lilac Hill Memorial Park in Caversham.

The session will provide a brief background on the recent floods, as well as important information and tools for residents to use in the instance of another flood event.

Swan Valley/Gidgegannup Ward Councillor Darryl Trease said the workshop would offer residents the opportunity to raise concerns and ask questions about flood situations.

“Those who attend the workshop will come out knowing how to prepare themselves and what to do in the event of a flood.”

“The session is also a great way for us to show ongoing support to residents affected by the recent floods, and to address any ongoing worries they might have.”

The City has been working hard to restore a number of City parks, reserves and assets damaged by the February floods.

While most parks and reserves are now open, Maali Bridge Park remains closed until further notice.

Deputy Mayor David Lucas said the City was also continuing to monitor areas affected by flooding for increased mosquito breeding and activity.

“City officers are still out and about identifying and treating high risk breeding areas; however we are asking the community continue to take extra care to protect themselves and their properties.”
