This Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy (DNRME) Water Monitoring Information Portal (WMIP) service operates for Departmental water assessment and management purposes.
For the latest information about stream and river heights for flood warning purposes, refer to the Commonwealth Bureau of Meteorology

* Please note that latest instantaneous and latest daily values are unverified data.
WMIP is supported during standard business hours.
Information delivered via WMIP is subject to DNRME’s departmental Water Monitoring Standards.
A mobile version of this service is available for use on smartphone / internet- enabled mobile devices and for computers with limited bandwidth. Support for these services is limited.
Some data displayed on this service is captured by automated monitoring stations. The most common method of data transmission is via the mobile phone network, while about 20% of the stations (often in very remote areas) use a satellite communications network. The normal frequency of data transmission for the majority of stations is hourly with satellite communication normally at three hourly intervals.
When weather conditions cause rapid increases in rainfall and/or river heights, the monitoring station dataloggers are capable of recording data every few minutes, while stations using the mobile network can transmit this data as it is generated. Upon receipt of the data, the expected latency (screening and processing through to publication on this web portal) is less than 30 minutes. Latency greater than this is usually due to there being no change in the data recorded or network communications issues preventing timely transmission of data.
