Rain in August did cause flows and levels to increase, but only for a brief period. With rain coming in small cells that affected very limited areas, levels have quickly declined again. Forecast for this week has a total of 20 mm possible that will not have a significant impact.
Wetlands in the upper parts of the watershed are virtually dry as are tributary streams to the rivers. Residents are reporting neighbours who continue to water lawns. All are requested to conserve water.
