FloodSmart Parramatta

Free FloodSmart Parramatta Service

The City of Parramatta is one of the most flash-flood affected areas in the state. To help keep our community safe, we have developed an easy-to-use, free flood warning service - FloodSmart Parramatta - for residents and businesses. When the FloodSmart Parramatta system predicts flooding is likely, you’ll get an early-warning message via text, email or phone (you choose!).

(Back to top)

When it rains hard, the Parramatta River and its tributaries flood quickly with little to no warning. This can endanger lives, block streets, damage buildings and disrupt essential services.

You can sign up to early-warnings for your home, workplace, children’s school or any area that interests you. You can also sign up to more than one warning area covered by FloodSmart Parramatta.

How does it work?

FloodSmart Parramatta is a free service provided by City of Parramatta in partnership with NSW State Emergency Service, Bureau of Meteorology, NSW Department of Planning Industry and Environment, and Sydney Water. 

All information provided to FloodSmart is secure, not shared with anyone, and used only to provide you with the best flood warning information available. You can make changes to your account anytime by going to the Early Warning Network website.

Currently, there are seven (7) areas across Parramatta identified to receive early-warning information, with more being developed soon. You can sign-up to receive warnings for as many areas that you need to know about (work, home, school, friends’ and relatives’ homes etc).

You can choose to receive warning messages in any combination of text, email, or automated voice message.

You can also view live flood warnings on the City of Parramatta website.

What are the areas FloodSmart Parramatta works in?
