Sheila, Linda and Bill did the rounds today on a sunny day with no rain having fallen for over 7 weeks. Millard creek still had a steady flow of water and Trib 1 of Piercy was reduced, but still flowing. Piercy was overheated at Cumberland Road and at River Meadows, even Trib 1 was over the 17 C recommended temperature. Millard, too , at the fish fence was recorded at 20 C. There was some slight improvement in % of oxygen saturation at River Meadows over last week….maybe the work on this creek upstream at the Slomp farm is already having an effect!
Here are the results:MPWS Water Quality 2017 8 Aug22
