Basin : Swan-Coastal
Catchment : Canning River
The condition of the Southern River site (site code: SRBDS), in the middle catchment of the Southern River, was assessed between 14 and 15 November 2012, over a 100-m length of stream. The site was also assessed in spring of 2006 (pilot study) 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
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 and temperature logged over 24h, and electrical conductivity, pH, colour, alkalinity, turbidity and nutrients), fringing vegetation, channel morphology, erosion, connectivity, local land use and flow.
This site was assessed as part of the River Health Assessment Scheme project.
