Local river levels continue to
rise, although the rate is slowing as inland rain eases to light showers and
drizzle. The Cust Main Drain has had the most significant rise, and is currently registering 74.2 cumecs. It peaked on 92 cumecs during the July 22nd
Although it is continuing to rise, the rate of climb has reduced and it
is expected to peak at a slightly lower level than we saw during last month’s
flood. The Ashley Gorge and Waimakariri are both also still rising but, in each
case, are well short of their July levels as the rate of climb slows. Ashley
Gorge registered a level of 51.2 cumecs this afternoon, compared to a whopping
569 in the July flood, while the Waimakariri was running at 375.7 cumecs, well
short of the 680 seen at its height last month. The latest rainfall levels in
the District are as follows: Oxford 55.4mm, Rangiora 47mm, Bradleys Road 38mm,
Kaiapoi 43.2mm and Woodend 53mm. The rain radar shows that the rain has
virtually stopped for the east of the district, and inland the rain has eased
to light showers and drizzle. This should continue through the night and by
lunch time tomorrow the rain should be over completely.
