The EPA and the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) are monitoring water quality in the Lower Lakes region. Ambient water quality sampling is undertaken fortnightly at a number of sites in Lake Alexandrina and Lake Albert as well as the Goolwa Channel and Tributaries regions (see map).
The Lower Lakes region is a recognised Ramsar wetland of international importance. It is home to many local industries such as fisheries, agriculture, tourism, and supports the local economy. Graphs and water quality information are available for each location.
Past and present reports and monitoring data are also available:
- Lake Alexandrina
- Lake Albert
- Goolwa Channel and tributaries regions
- Lower Lakes groundwater monitoring
- Boggy Creek
- Hunter's Creek
- Reports and data
- Lower Lakes transects
