In fact over the 14th and 15th The official Yass fall was 117mm, the most in 21 years.
So of course my first thought was lets check out the river, which was a little swollen, so then we thought lets go to the dam. Well in Yass it is really just a big weir. So the 1st photo is on the 15th, the second day of rain. Note the overflow on the far right is not being used. But is still looks good.
Now by the 15th the rains eased but all the water was still flowing into the dam from the Yass River.
Now note the far right overflow. Also there was a tonne of branches being wased down.
Now further down the river has busted its banks
And now down at the Riverside park. (Near the old railway bridge). Right here there is an actual path that allows one to cross the river (normally).
Now here is the other end of the park. There is an actual road crossing here and to the right of the posts a footpath. The riverbank here has come up at least 15 metres. Also in the background you can see the street sign.
Now finally behind our place you can access Yass River prior to the dam wall. Now there is a bridge under that water and it is usually 2 metres above the bridge to the water. As you can see no bridge and the water level would be at least 1 metre above.
And a final one of Yass River once again before the dam wall and were there is a boat ramp.
