Collecting environmental data to guide waterway management

Georges River – River Health Monitoring ProgramWater monitoring is essential to ensure that management resources are allocated to appropriate areas and management actions are achieving stated goals.

Georges Riverkeeper’s River Health Monitoring Program collects environmental data to guide waterway management and inform the community about the condition of waterways across the catchment. The Program applies scientifically rigorous methods to the assessment of freshwater tributaries and estuarine sections of the Georges River.

Complex data is simplified into grades, such as those reported in the 2017/2018 Report Card, to facilitate a shared understanding about the condition of waterways.
