Our group has been monitoring local waterways through the local Waterwatch program. We undertake regular monitoring at this site to ensure that the water in our local area is healthy for swimming, boating and irrigation
ACT Waterwatch says:
While these numbers are different, they are telling the same basic story as the Renmark North Primary School.
This site is one of our regular Waterwatch monitoring sites and it is located at the end of Goolwa Street at Renmark North. The area surrounding the site is rural residential and irrigated land beyone the floodplain. Water is taken from this creek for houses and irrigation in the area. The Ral Ral creek joins the River Murray at Renmark.
What's going on:
The site and area is mostly residential and recreational and water from the creek is used for irrigation close by.
As above – we monitor the water quality at the site each school term as part of the Waterwatch program.
