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.

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.
Darling River downstream of Wilcannia to Burtundy:
Minor flooding is occurring along the Darling River at Menindee, Pooncarie, and Burtundy.
The Darling River at Menindee town gauge is likely to remain near 9.00 metres through to the end of August, with minor flooding.
The Darling River at Pooncarie is likely to remain near 6.90 metres through to mid September, with minor flooding.
The Darling River at Burtundy is likely to remain near 6.70 metres through to late September, with minor flooding.
