ACT Waterwatch says:
Again, higher than expected turbidity, but without information on the weather, it's hard to know if this is a problem or not. After storms, turbidity spikes are normal; it is when turbidity is consistently high that an impact on ecosystems is seen.
The exposed bank down stream is a concern. Are there similar exposed sites upstream as well that could be contributing to turbidity?
