Collected by: Queensland Murray Darling Committee (QMDC)

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

Water quality:

Turbidity: 400NTUs
pH: 7.4
Salinity: Electrical Conductivity (microsiemens/cm) 247

Sample taken in a small pool approx. 5m wide and 100m long.

ACT Waterwatch says:

This is an extremely high turbidity. Note that there is almost no soil coverage on the banks. When rain falls, this soil will be washing into the river. Fencing, planting out with native under story and pasture management are desperately needed here.
