Where We Test

The Bellingen Riverwatch program sees volunteers take monthly water quality data at 15 core sites and 7 additional sites across the Bellinger and Kalang Rivers.

What We Test For

Bellingen Riverwatch Volunteers conduct site assessments, take site photos and test water samples for the following indicators of river health:

  • Temperature;
  • pH;
  • Electrical Conductivity (Salinity);
  • Turbidity;
  • 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.
