22 November 2021: The Murrumbidgee River has fallen to approximately 6.0m

The Murrumbidgee River in Wagga has fallen to approximately 6.0m and will continue to fall over the next few days as the outflow from Burrinjuck Dam has decreased.

Burrinjuck Dam is currently sitting at 90% with airspace being created ahead of the potentially extensive rain event predicted for later this week around Wagga Wagga and across the catchment upstream of the dam.

Mundowy Lane is still inundated with water and under traffic control and River Road is closed with approximately 400mm of water flowing across the Houlaghans Creek causeway.

Council is monitoring the river and the road network and will make changes to these arrangements as necessary.
