catchment_monitoring_img Water quality monitoring provides critical data that informs the management of waterways in the Geographe Bay Catchment. This data feeds into the water quality support model developed by the Department of Water as part of the Water Quality Improvement Plan for the Vasse Wonnerup Wetlands and Geographe Bay (WQIP). The modelling then provides us with information about where nutrients are coming, allowing us to target action in those areas.

Achievements
  • Fortnightly sampling of 21 sites in the Geographe Bay Catchment from Capel to Eagle Bay
  • All data entered into the Water Information Network Database is managed by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation
Funding and Partnerships

This project is supported by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation.

Project Future

The continued collection of water quality data is important to enable us, in partnership with the Department of Water, to track water quality trends across the Catchment.
