Sheila and Cheuey tested on Monday, 13th July to see how the creeks were faring during the current drought and heat wave. Two sites, Piercy Creek at Willemar and at River Meadows were warmer than guidelines suggest (max 17C) . Ph was quite high all round, but not above guidelines and oxygen was good. Tho we had the Oxy meter calibrated a little high. The meter was reading low when we started and I adjusted it, but when we finished it was reading high….might have been too dry when we first calibrated.
The new creek course at Trib 1 was looking very good and there were many fry there.
