Long Term Intervention Monitoring Project Murrumbidgee System Selected Area Project Progress Report #17: Report period: 1 July 2018 – 30 September 2018

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

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 July and 30 September 2018. 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.

Half of the twelve wetland sites were either dry or contained insufficient water to set nets. Redbank, Two Bridges and Piggery Lake were receiving water, Wagourah Lagoon contained residual water, and Mercedes was dry. In Nimmie-Caira, Nap Nap had water remaining from the Autumn refuge flow, Telephone Creek was fairly low, and Avalon Dam contained insufficient water to sample. Water was entering Eulimbah from the south Caira canal at the time of monitoring. In the mid-Murrumbidgee, only Yarradda contained a small amount of residual water.
