SINCE the Murrumbidgee River peak of about 7.16 metres on Wednesday, October 12, the water level has started to fall slowly.
The river is still sitting at a level of 6.93 metres which falls into the minor flooding category and is remaining steady in its rate of decline bringing relief to many property owners in the region.
Residents have been warned to expect the river to remain at a higher than normal level for the foreseeable future.
Motorists are reminded to take care when driving through the area as any rainfall may result in water over roads which can be fast moving, deep and result in damage to roads and bridges.
When driving at night and early morning it is important that drivers remain aware and alert as floodwaters over roads are not always visible especially in the dark.
