The South Burnett Local Disaster Management Committee has stood down.
The committee met on Friday morning to review the latest flood impacts on the region and made the decision to stand down following reports of receding flood water and severe weather warnings subsiding overnight.
South Burnett Regional Council has asked the community be patient to allow inspectors the opportunity to review the roads and bridges and to ensure public safety when travelling on this infrastructure.
Sunwater have also advised that waters flowing into Boondooma Dam may cause the spillway to discharge water.
Council will monitor the situation.
The public are still encouraged to report weather and road impacts to Council’s Infrastructure team on (07) 4189-9100.
Residents are advised to drive to the prevailing road conditions, obey signs and not drive or walk through floodwater.
Residents should not expect to see warnings signs for every crossing.
In a life threatening emergency call Triple Zero or for assistance with property damage phone the SES on 13-25-00.
