High river warning Georges Creek gauge on Macleay River

Kempsey Shire Council

Bridge river flood update generic graphic

The Georges Creek gauge on the Macleay River measured 4m at 2pm on Wednesdy 25 August.

This rise is due to wet weather experienced in the upper Macleay Catchment over the last 24-48 hours.

Please be aware that this rise may impact low level bridges that cross the Macleay River, with Bellbrook Bridge at the highest risk of overtopping.

Please take the appropriate steps to prepare for this river rise to progress downstream.

Council Staff will continue to monitor the situation and provide updated advice as it becomes available.
