Minor Flood Warning for the Darling River

Issued at 2:23 PM EST on Friday 19 Aug 2022.

Flood Warning Number: 56

MINOR FLOODING OCCURRING AT MENINDEE, POONCARIE AND BURTUNDY

The main flood peak along the Darling River is currently passing Menindee, where minor flooding is occurring.

The river level at Menindee is likely to remain steady above the minor flood level through to the end of August as WaterNSW plans to maintain current release levels. Subject to inflow conditions, the current release level may be extended further. The release plan follows consultation with the SES and local communities.

Downstream of Menindee, minor flooding is occurring at Pooncarie and Burtundy, where river levels are steady.
