Localised flooding closes sportsfield

MINOR flooding may develop along the River Derwent below Meadowbank Dam overnight tonight and into Wednesday, and along the Rivers Ouse and Clyde during Wednesday based on forecast rainfall.

The Bureau of Meteorology reports that river levels are easing in the lower Derwent tributaries, including the Tyenna, Styx and Plenty Rivers. Localised minor flooding has developed throughout the Derwent Valley following persistent rain over the last few days.

With the Lachlan Rivulet presently in flood, large sections of Tynwald Park in New Norfolk have been closed, including the sportsfields, toilets and vehicle access towards the Wetlands at the bottom of the park.
