25 November 2021: River on the rise after storms and consistent rainfall
The Murrumbidgee River is at 3.75m and has started rising slowly with increased rainfall and runoff during the past 24 hours.
The rainfall in the catchments of the tributaries such as Kyeamba, Tarcutta and Adelong creeks will make its way into the river over the next 24-48 hours and then on to Wagga Wagga.
Lake Albert is overflowing and that water is making its way into the Murrumbidgee via Marshalls Creek.
Both Blowering and Burrinjuck dams have increased inflows and the majority of the water is being contained in the dams and not currently flowing through the river system.
Houlaghans Creek, Dukes Creek and Billabong Creek are flowing after localised storms and rainfall across the LGA. Council reminds you to not drive through flood water and to take extra care on unsealed roads.
