Council staff currently have pumps working to pump the water out of these areas. The roads have reopened to traffic, however there is still some water over the roads. Please take care when driving.

Matilda Drive

One entrance to Matilda Drive is currently blocked. Residents can access their properties from the other end.

Connelly Estate - Kakadu Drive

Council staff have put on two extra pumps to pump out the water into a discharge channel. The water should drain out over the weekend.
The current drainage system is temporary and was put in place by the developer while the estate was being developed. Council does have plans in place for a longer term drainage project, which will improve drainage throughout the estate.

Crestwood Estate - Redgum Court

The pump being used is currently at capacity and Council has two water trucks currently taking the water away. At this stage, there are no additional pumps available, although we are investigating where we can source more pumps to assist in this area.

Mason Court/ Blossom Way

Council staff are currently sandbagging this area.

The pump being used to pump out water is at capacity and the Goulburn Murray Water Channel is currently overflowing.

Council's Local Laws staff are out in the area investigating complaints of illegal discharge from properties into the GM-W channel.

A drainage upgrade for this area is currently out to tender. These works will help alleviate similar problems in the future.

Mehmet Drive - Dobson Estate

There is currently water over the road in Mehmet Drive and surrounding streets.
Council staff are currently investigating pumping options to best assist the situation.
