MINOR FLOODING CONTINUING ALONG THE CAMPASPE RIVER AT ECHUCA

Campaspe River downstream of Rochester:

Minor flooding is continuing along the Campaspe River downstream of Rochester.

The Campaspe River at Echuca is currently at 93.50 m AHD (Australian Height Datum) and steady, with minor flooding. The river level is expected to remain above the minor flood level (92.80 m AHD) for the next few days. River levels are expected to remain elevated due to the elevated water levels in the Murray River at Echuca.

Flood Safety Advice:

SES advises that all community members should:

  • Never walk, ride or drive through floodwater,
  • Never allow children to play in floodwater,
  • Stay away from waterways and stormwater drains during and after heavy rain,
  • Keep well clear of fallen power lines
  • Be aware that in fire affected areas, rainfall run-off into waterways may contain debris such as ash, soil, trees and rocks, and heavy rainfall increases the potential for landslides and debris across roads.
