Abstract

The Commonwealth Environmental Water Office (CEWO) Monitoring, Evaluation and Research (MER) Program (2019-2022) replaces monitoring and research activities under the Long-Term Intervention Monitoring (LTIM) and Environmental Water Knowledge and Research (EWKR) projects (2014-2019).
The MER Program provides the critical evidence that is required to understand how water for the environment is helping maintain, protect, and restore the ecosystems and native species across the Murray–Darling Basin (MDB) and informs management of Commonwealth water for the environment.
The MER Program consists of evaluation, research and engagement at a Basin-scale and monitoring, evaluation, research and engagement across seven Selected Areas within the MDB.
This report summarises the key outcomes of monitoring and evaluation, research, communications and engagement that were undertaken in the Edward/Kolety-Wakool (EKW) Selected Area in 2019-20.
Further details are available in a technical report (Watts et al. 2020). This project was undertaken as a collaboration between Charles Sturt University, NSW DPI (Fisheries), NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, La Trobe University and Streamology. One of the research projects was undertaken in partnership with the Edward-Wakool Angling Association as a citizen science project.
