In March 2019, council undertook a community survey to identify the preferred design of interactive flood markers for the Emerald Botanic Gardens.

The proposed flood markers (also described as 'flood totems') will commemorate the three major historical floods of 1950*, 2008 and 2010.

*Please note: The marker for the 1950 historical flood was previously listed incorrectly as 1956. Council apologies for this error.

    In May 2020, construction of the flood marker totems went out to tender. The project team have been focusing on securing a particular type of timber, with a low moisture content. This will ensure the timber doesn't dry out and deform or rot. Construction has been delayed, but is expected to be completed by the end of December 2020. Provisional locations can be viewed here.
