North East residents may have been noticing low flow levels in creeks
and tributaries in North East Victoria recently. North East Catchment
Management Authority (North East CMA) understands that this may
cause concern about the impact of these low water levels to
The low flows currently occurring are as a result of Victoria
experiencing very dry conditions in the last 10 months. The latest
information from the Bureau of Meteorology suggests that an El Niño
event, which has been influencing weather patterns, is now abating.
Most climate models are suggesting a return to average/slightly
wetter rainfall for April –June.
