At this level, water commences to come into Warren’s Gully and over the bank into Plantation Creek.

Residents of Rita Island and Groper Creek should continue to monitor heights.  Water will commence to come onto the Groper Creek Reserve and Rita Island Bridge this evening.

It is not possible to accurately predict the height which outbreak waters will reach at locations away from the river banks.  The information contained in the Council’s Flood Reports relating to these effects, including predictions of effects at Rita Island and Groper Creek, are to provide guidance only..

A further bulletin will be issued at 8am on the 21st March, 2012.
