Each month Bellingen Riverwatch volunteers conduct site assessments, take site photos and collect water quality samples from set sites along the Bellinger and Kalang rivers. The samples are then tested for the following indicators of river health:
- Electrical Conductivity (Salinity)
- Available Phosphate;
- and Dissolved Oxygen.
This is complemented by Faecal Coliform testing by OzGREEN and bi-annual water quality testing by Scientists from the Office of Environment and Heritage.
Results from August 2017 to June 2018 are available here.
