Issued at 11:30 am EST on Wednesday 27 July 2016
In the 24 hours to 9am Wednesday rainfall totals of less than 10 mm have been
recorded in the Goulburn River catchment.

Rainfall totals of around 5-15 mm are possible for the Goulburn River catchment
for the remainder of Wednesday.

Upstream of Lake Eildon
The Goulburn River at Dohertys is around the minor flood level (2.0 metres).
The river is expected to fall slowly but remain near the minor flood level for
the remainder of Wednesday.

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.
