Abstract

The Monitoring, Evaluation and Research (MER) Program is the primary means by which the Commonwealth Environmental Water Office (CEWO) monitors and evaluates the ecological outcomes of Commonwealth environmental watering actions. The MER Program builds on the Long-Term Intervention Monitoring (LTIM) Project (2014-19) and is being implemented in the Murrumbidgee catchment for a five year period (2019-2024) to inform environmental water management and demonstrate watering outcomes.
The Murrumbidgee MER team is led by Professor Skye Wassens from Charles Sturt University, along with scientists and technicians from the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) (Environment and Heritage Group), NSW Department of Primary Industries (Fisheries) and the University of New South Wales (Centre for Ecosystem Sciences). Funding from the CEWO supports monitoring of the hydrological and ecological outcomes of watering actions in the river and wetlands of the Murrumbidgee. This summary report focuses on the outcomes of watering actions undertaken from 1st July 2021 to 30th June 2022 (the 2021-22 water year), with reference to watering outcomes from previous years (2014 - 2021).
