Wungong River - WUNGRIV05A
Basin : Swan-Coastal
Catchment : Canning River
The condition of the Wungong River - WUNGRIV05A site (site code: WUNGRIV05A), in the middle catchment of the Wungong River was assessed between 11 and 12 October 2016, over a 100-m length of stream. The site was also assessed in spring 2011, 2012 and autumn 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2016.
The assessment was conducted using standard methods from the South West Index of River Condition. Measures chosen for this assessment included water quality (dissolved oxygen, temperature, electrical conductivity and pH logged over 24h).
However, fish and crayfish, macroinvertebrates, aquatic habitat, water quality (dissolved oxygen, temperature, electrical conductivity and pH logged over 24h, and colour, alkalinity, turbidity and nutrients), fringing vegetation, channel morphology, erosion, connectivity, local land use and flow were assessed at a site 300 m downstream at site Wungong River - WUNGRIV05 (6164352).
This site was assessed as part of the Urban Waterways Renewal project.
An online condition summary for this site has not been prepared. Please contact the Departments River Science team for site information, and see below for links to information on some of the species found at the site, and some images taken in October 2016.
