Upper Chapman Brook - Rosa Glen Road
Basin : Blackwood River
Catchment : Lower Blackwood River
The condition of the Upper Chapman Brook - Rosa Glen Road site (site code: UCHAP6), in the middle catchment of the Chapman Brook, was assessed between 24 and 25 October 2012, over a 100-m length of stream. At this time no previous assessments of river ecology had been reported. Note: this site is close to the Upper Chapman Brook - Upstream Bridgelands Road (BR37-UPPE1) site, but is considered a separate sampling site.
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. A water quality sample was also taken on 19 June 2012. The site was visited in February 2013 but could not be sampled as it was dry.
Fish and crayfish
Five fish and two crayfish species were found at this site in October 2012, including one exotic fish.
