List of indicators monitored
Note not all indicators are monitored at all sites.
Scale of program
Regional and catchment or basin scale
Brief description of sampling locations
End of catchment and major sub-catchments - 29 gauging stations to gather data over a long period of time (30 years).
Single land use and small catchments - ‘mini’ gauging stations at 10 sites. Rising stage samplers may also be installed at some sites.
Frequency of monitoring
Stream flow rates are calculated from continuously logged stream water level height measurements using site specific rating curves.
Water quality sampling is conducted throughout major flow events. It is also conducted on a monthly basis during periods of base flow conditions. Manual ‘grab’ sampling is conducted at monitoring sites:
