Bridge Flood Camera Network

To enhance our community’s preparedness for disaster events, Council has installed a network of four Bridge Flood Cameras across our Shire to provide our community with real-time information and warnings by monitoring river levels and flood impacts on local bridges.

During normal conditions bridge camera images will be updated every 30 minutes and each image is time and date stamped, within the black footer in the bottom right hand side of the image, to identify when the image was taken.

To access bridge cameras and real-time images, simply click on the following link: Bridge Flood Camera Network
