One company has told the Forbes Advocate they are still assessing the damage that's been done to the site, on Dowling Street, the second has assured the Advocate they're committed to reopening the Forbes site.
Forbes' BP and Ampol service stations stand on opposite corners on Dowling Street, where waters were so deep and fast-flowing fire trucks and then boats were used to ferry essential workers through town.
A BP spokesperson told the Advocate the company is continuing to assess the flood damage, "with appropriate repair work being scheduled to get the sites back up and running as quickly and safely as possible.
"We will keep the community updated as sites reopen."
EG Group said they're committed to reopening the EG Ampol site in Forbes, "and continue to work closely with our contractor partners to do this as quickly as possible".
