Lefroy Brook - Channybearup
Basin : Warren River
Catchment : Warren River
The condition of the Channybearup site (site code: WR147LEFR1), in the upper catchment of the Lefroy Brook, was assessed between 20 and 21 February 2017, over a 100-m length of stream. At this time no previous assessments of river ecology had been reported.
The assessment was conducted using standard methods from the South West Index of River Condition. Measures chosen for this assessment included fish and crayfish, macroinvertebrates, aquatic habitat, water quality (dissolved oxygen, temperature, electrical conductivity, and pH logged every 30 minutes from 7 December 2016 to 11 May 2017 and colour, alkalinity, turbidity and nutrients), fringing vegetation, channel morphology, erosion, connectivity, local land use and flow.
