Community Flood Update - 24 November 2022
Get an update on the current Murray River Flood Event from Incident Controller Russell Manning, and representatives from other key agencies, which was recorded on Thursday 24 November 2022.
Residents who reside in closed-off areas due to the Murray River Flood event are being asked to work with Mildura Rural City Council to ensure their kerbside bins are collected on time.
Council contractors are unable to enter closed roads, so residents are being asked to place their bins at the nearest open road prior to collection day. Our Waste team is available to discuss further. Please contact them on 03 5018 8100.
