2 August 2021: Murrumbidgee River level holds steady
To keep up to date about flooding in the Wagga Wagga area visit: State Emergency Service.
The Murrumbidgee River has stabilised between 6.4m and 6.5m and is expected to stay at around this height for the next few days.
About 300m of Mundowy Lane is under water from Beavers Creek and traffic control is in place to assist and escort motorists using this important link road.
Traffic controllers will remain at the site while the river in Wagga Wagga is above 6m on the gauge.
Parken Pragen Lagoon has filled and access to some reserves along the length of the river has also been compromised.
Rain is forecast for tomorrow (Tuesday 3 August) but is expected to clear during the week allowing WaterNSW to continue lowering the levels of Burrinjuck and Blowering Dams.
