Monitoring Program

Explore Main

Monitoring of the health of the Mount Barker Creek will continue in order to measure improvements resulting from upgrading of the effluent plant. Water quality monitoring includes testing of salinity, temperature, phosphorus, nitrates, turbidity and macro-invertebrate populations.

Monitoring of the ecological changes the wetland undergoes over time will take place to improve understanding of ecological processes and aid management.
