Abstract

This quarterly report outlines key activities undertaken and preliminary outcomes identified during monitoring of ecosystem responses to the use of
Commonwealth environmental water in the Murrumbidgee Catchment
undertaken as part of the Murrumbidgee Long Term Intervention Monitoring
(LTIM) Project between 1 January and 31 March 2019. Monitoring includes
assessment of ecological outcomes in the Murrumbidgee River and connected
wetlands through the mid-Murrumbidgee and Lowbidgee floodplain wetlands as
outlined in the Murrumbidgee Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.

Three of the four South Redbank sites held water at the time of both January and
March surveys. Two of the four wetland sites monitored in Nimmie-Caira held
sufficient water for nets at the time of the March surveys. Three of the four mid-Murrumbidgee sites were dry at the time of both January and March surveys and Yarradda Lagoon dropped from full in January to around 50% in March.
