Raising awareness about the value and use of native grasslands, seasonal wetlands, grassy woodlands & other ecosystems on the Victorian Volcanic Plains

Community Waterwatch Callout

Lismore Land Protection Group is starting a community Waterwatch group as part of the ‘national community water monitoring program which focuses on environmental education and awareness.’ Participating community members are trained to use the Waterwatch kit to test for dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, electrical conductivity (salinity), turbidity and reactive phosphorus.

Water quality testing is undertaken at regular intervals, usually monthly.  Testing takes around 30 min and can be conducted on site at the waterway.  If you would like to start a local group to monitor a waterway in your area or anyone interested in participating, please contact Shari on 0409 070089 or at
