Council crews were out and about on Wednesday morning assessing the damage and making repairs following heavy rain earlier in the week.
There was still plenty of water around and several roads remained closed.
Urgent repair works as a result of the heavy rain were set to begin at Government Bend on the Kings Highway. The road was open, however, traffic control and speed restrictions will be in place.
As waters recede from local flooded bridges, they’ll be assessed, cleaned, repaired and opened as a priority.
Flood damage to Council infrastructure valued at more than $240,000 triggers eligibility to apply for a NSW Government Natural Disaster Declaration, which provides funding for repairs to flood-damaged assets.
Four were declared in 2020 for floods in February, July, August, and October, with December’s application pending.
Council anticipates Natural Disaster Declaration eligibility for the March 2021 floods.
Meanwhile, residents and visitors should avoid swimming at beaches and rivers for a few days.
Waterways may be polluted following the high influx of rain and stormwater, and there is danger of debris like logs and branches that can cause injury.
