Bushfire Impact Water Quality

Water quality loggers were installed in seven NSW estuaries with bushfire impact in the surrounding catchment area in January 2020 - Bellinger River, Khappinghat Creek, Lake Conjola, Termeil Lake, Meroo Lake, Tuross River and Wonboyn River. These loggers will record the water quality response in each estuary over time with a range of phyico-chemical indicators, including; temperature, conductivity, salinity and dissolved oxygen, and in the Wonboyn River; pH, turbidity, chlorophyll-a and coloured dissolved organic matter. The data will be updated approximately monthly.
