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.

COST: Free to approved Waterwise Schools for up to two classes per school (60 students).

Excursion duration is 1.5 hrs and can be booked from 9:30am to 2:30pm.  Start and finish times can be adjusted to your needs.
