Southern 80 – Media Release

17 January 2011 – 11am

The Campaspe River has experienced unprecedented water levels over the past 48 hours. This has significantly impacted on residents and businesses upstream in Rochester and low lying areas of Echuca have been affected over the past 24 hours.

The Moama Water Sports Club will convene a meeting with the relevant authorities towards the end of this week to gain a thorough understanding as to the impact on the Murray River, debris and access to camping areas.

Over the past 5 months, we have seen on 3 occasions how quickly water levels can rise and fall in the Murray River. With over 3 ½ weeks until the start of the Club Marine Southern 80, as it stands, the event will still take place on the scheduled weekend of 11 – 13 February.

We will continue to provide updates as they come to hand.

These updates will be posted on the Southern 80 website and on our twitter page
