A day of sunshine on Wednesday has seen Murrumbidgee River water levels steadily decline after increasing by more than 3.3 metres over the previous few days.
Water levels hit a high of 5.38 metres in Wagga on Tuesday, after Water NSW was forced to increase the amount of water released from dams to ensure there was enough capacity to deal with the onslaught of wet weather which had hit the region.
But water levels had steadied in Wagga to 4.64 metres by 2pm on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, Burrinjuck Dam was releasing 10,500 megalitres of water, down from 20,000 on Tuesday, and had an inflow of 12,000 megalitres.
Although minimal rain is forecast for Thursday, more rain looms for Friday and over the weekend.
The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a further 5 to 10 millimetres of rain for Wagga on Friday, with 6 to 10 millimetres for both Saturday and Sunday.
The wet conditions are expected to continue into Monday, before beginning to clear on Tuesday.
SES deputy southern zone commander Barry Griffiths said they are prepared in the event of potential flooding.
"We've started our operational planning, we started that today and formally will establish an incident management team which will maintain a watch over the flooding over the next few days," he said.
"We have started our public information campaign as well, with posts on Facebook and to the media.
"We are just mobilising teams and providing information out to our units, that will enable them to prepare correctly.
"Our units are proactive with flooding."
