What it contains

This publication provides an overview of a detailed study of the environmental condition of rivers and streams in the Ovens catchment (EPA Publication 909). The Ovens River is considered one of the more important tributaries of the Murray-Darling Basin, both for the volume and quality of its waters, and its good ecological condition. It is one of the least regulated rivers in the Murray-Darling system, and its lower reaches have been designated a Heritage River because of its high environmental value. This report presents results from monitoring programs undertaken by the EPA in the Ovens catchment prior to the bushfires of 2003. High resolution versions of figures 1 and 2 are also attached below.
