Clean up

Council crews are out and about assessing and making repairs where possible, including filling potholes. As waters recede from flooded bridges, they’ll be assessed, cleaned, repaired and opened as a priority.

The NSW Government has declared the floods in Eurobodalla a natural disaster, along with much of the state, triggering eligibility for government funding to restore damaged public assets. Four natural disasters were declared for Eurobodalla in 2020 for floods in February, July, August, and October, with December’s application pending.

Assistance for primary producers The floods in Bega Valley and Eurobodalla have now been declared natural disasters. For primary producers, this opens support through the NSW Rural Assistance Authority for low interest loans and transport subsidies. Landholders are urged to complete the Natural Disaster Damage Survey (https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/climate-and-emergencies/emergency/community/primary-industries-natural-disaster-damage-survey) to help inform government of the level of impact to allow targeting of support and resources. Primary producers can contact the RAA on 1800 678 593 or email rural.assist@raa.nsw.gov.au

Water conditions

Please avoid swimming at beaches and rivers for a few days until the water clears. Waterways may be polluted following the high influx of rain and stormwater, and there is danger of debris like logs and branches that can cause injury.

Sportsgrounds

All sportsgrounds in the Eurobodalla remain closed.
