As a result of the recent high rainfalls and subsequent flooding Melbourne Water is working with emergency services and other relevant agencies to review the impacts to our waterways and assets. 

For flood or storm emergency assistance, contact the VIC SES on 132 500 and for life threatening emergencies call 000. 

You can access current emergency information by calling the VicEmergency Hotline on 1800 226 226 or sign up to receive regular updates regarding flooding via the emergency.vic.gov.au website and app.

Calculate your stormwater offset contribution

Stormwater offset contributions are paid by developers to reduce the impacts of stormwater pollution from urban developments.

Developers pay a contribution to us for necessary stormwater management works if they don’t meet their stormwater objectives. Contributions are paid as development occurs.

Stormwater offset contributions apply primarily for areas outside of drainage schemes. However, some drainage schemes also include a stormwater offset rate.

Important note
The table below shows the rates per hectare for each municipality.
Use the calculator for the relevant council to calculate your contribution based on your development type and size.
