"This means river levels will remain high today (Thursday, January 21) and for the next few days, leading to continued flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river.

"We expect the river to remain high throughout today, and for the next few days. Flood Warnings remain in place at North Bank Road and the B1040. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens."
