Upstream of Pig Camp
Basin : Harvey River
Catchment : Harvey River
The condition of the Upstream of Pig Camp site (site code: HARV07), in the upper catchment of Harvey River, was assessed several times between February and April 2011 (see report in link below). 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. Primarily measures chosen for this assessment included, fish and crayfish, aquatic habitat, water quality (dissolved oxygen, temperature, electrical conductivity, and pH) logged every 10 mins between 7 February and 10 May 2011, fringing vegetation, channel morphology, erosion, connectivity, local land use and flow.
The site was assessed as part an assessment of ecological health and environmental water provisions in the Harvey River – view report here.
