Lake Eyre Basin Rivers Assessment 2012 Monitoring Report
The aim of this report is to present monitoring results from spring 2011 and autumn 2012; the second year of the current monitoring program. The scope of this report is set by the 2012 LEBRA Project Plan (SEWPaC 2011). The current phase of the LEBRA monitoring operates under the 'LEBRA Implementation Plan 2010-2018' which was endorsed by LEB Ministerial Forum in April 2010. A more comprehensive assessment of the condition of LEB watercourses and catchments will be produced as part of the condition assessment required under the LEB Intergovernmental Agreement.
The 2012 LEBRA Project Plan identified the monitoring indicators for the 2012 LEBRA as hydrology, water quality and fish. Monitoring was undertaken by the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) Aquatic Sciences Division, Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM) (formally Department of Environment and Resource Management) and Northern Territory Department of Natural Resources, Environment, the Arts and Sport (NRETAS) (now the Department of Land Resource Management).
