A comparison of water quality

The Kent Street Weir on the Canning River provides a unique location to compare two river systems. Students utilise field equipment to assess abiotic features such as pH, salinity, turbidity, dissolved oxygen and nutrient levels both upstream and downstream of the Weir. Water quality data is compared and discussed in terms of the impacts on aquatic life and the long-term management of the Canning River.
