The Caring for Waterhole Creek program is a collaboration between EPA and the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority (WGCMA). This eight-month program consists of volunteers monitoring water quality on a fortnightly basis at a number of sites along Waterhole Creek, starting in February 2017.
Volunteers are testing the water for a range of things including pH, phosphorus and conductivity. There will also be testing for other substances such heavy metals and pesticides, plus macroinvertebrate sampling.
The aim of the program is to understand the existing environmental conditions of Waterhole Creek. This knowledge will support current and future management practices on waterway health and biodiversity.
