Waterwatch Guide

The Upper Murrumbidgee Waterwatch (Waterwatch) database contains over 22,000 records, and is continuously growing, representing an incredible wealth of data on the condition of our local waterways. While the bulk of this data is water quality data, there is also over 1000 water bug plus another 1000 riverbank condition assessments. These give greater context to the condition of the waterways in the ACT region.
