The Bega Valley saw some extremely welcome rain over the weekend, but due to the quantity that has fallen NSW State Emergency Service (SES) workers have been kept busy.
Bega Valley SES units attended 13 jobs since the event began, mainly trees that had fallen down or leaky roofs, and the local units have been bolstered with support from Queanbeyan/Palerang crews.
The jump in rainfall was brought about by a coastal trough that has been moving southerly down the NSW coastline.
Public information officer with the SES Ian Campbell said the worst of the coastal trough was expected between Monday morning and mid-afternoon and the extent of the risk would be known about four to six hours later.
He said the main safety messages for residents was around driving to conditions and not entering floodwaters.
Also, he said flash flooding was "a real possibility" in areas that had already been damaged by the recent bushfires as the landscape had already been striped back by flames.
SES crews will also be doorknocking on Monday morning in the areas around The Oaks, Moore Wrens and Murrays Flat Roads in Tarraganda, Acacia Ponds and Merimbula Caravan Park.
Mr Campbell said the crews were passing on the most recent information to residents, not telling them to leave their homes.
Recent photos on social media have shown engorged waterways in the Bemboka region, but Mr Campbell said the only complication brought by the rain in the area was related to repair works at Carpenters Bridge on Polacks Flat Rd, but that would be "nothing too drastic".
He said Bega Valley Shire Council's water and sewerage teams were monitoring water supplies and a range of contingencies had been put in place last week to reduce the flow of sediment into catchments.
