Collected by: Annie Beare

Through involvement in Landcare and the Queensland Murray Darling Committee's Sub Catchment Planning work.

Water quality:

Turbidity: 250NTUs
pH: 7.1
Salinity: Electrical Conductivity (microseimens/cm) 279

2.5 inches of rain fell on catchment area north-east of site a week ago. Prior to this the creek was dry. Very little rain around the site, so even though the creek is full, the surrounding area is still very dry.

ACT Waterwatch says:

The significant rain event probably explains the raised turbidity.
