Melbourne Water and Weekend Flooding

Courtesy of the weekend flooding in Melbourne I have used the Melbourne Water instantaneous flow rates published on their website to check out the peak flooding of Plenty River at Greensborough.

This is a shot from standing next to the automatic reporting station. The small white post sticking out of the water in the middle of the photo is the road side flood level indicator which I think tops at 3.5 metres which is about consistent with the automatically reported river level.

And this is photo from a short way downstream showing a sign stating the obvious.
