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.

Please note: The Thomson Dam Cam is currently experiencing technical issues. We are working to address the problem and apologies for any inconvenience.

Thomson Dam Cam

The Thomson Dam Cam is a window to the biggest of our 10 water storages, located 200km from Melbourne.

The camera, positioned on the dam wall, looks down the length of the Thomson Reservoir. It takes a photograph of the area approximately every ten minutes during daylight hours.
