Flow estimate FLOOD / OVERBANK: flow is high and water level has exceeded bank capacity and is connecting with floodplain
Water Appearance Muddy
Stream depth Other:Over 2 metres, very high and rising
Stream width > 5m

High rainfall, over 50 mm in past 24 hours, low EC and high turbdity but makes sense with high flood levels. Water does not have the appearance of sediment from Kalkallo creek at this stage. Currently water is still rising and drains are all flowing.
