Reports & data
Sampling has occurred since 2008 at sites throughout Lake Alexandrina, Lake Albert, Goolwa Channel, Currency Creek, Finniss River, Boggy Creek and Hunters Creek. Sampling frequency has varied over time. During the hydrological drought, sampling occurred more frequently. Since flow returned, sampling frequency has declined. To compliment field sampling, water is also taken to the Australian Water Quality Centre for analysis. Available here is field measured data.
During the Millennium Drought, monthly reports were written to provide an early warning and context to water quality information. Water quality is still reported on monthly, but formal reports are not supplied.
Reports analysing this data:
- Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth water quality monitoring program 2009–2016
- Lower Lakes benthic ecosystem toxicity assessment (BETA) pilot study
- Measurement of sediment acidity fluxes to Boggy and Hunters Creeks
- Water quality in the Lower Lakes during a hydrological drought
- Air quality in the Lower Lakes during a hydrological drought
- Lower Lakes Invertebrate Monitoring Report
- Groundwater Monitoring Report (2011)
