Harvey River - 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.

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.
