Abstract

This report describes results and conclusions from the monitoring component of the Douglas Shire Council (DSC) water quality project. The components of this project that this report addresses are:

• Site selection and installation of in-stream and off-paddock automatic water quality monitoring equipment in the Douglas Shire.

• Design of appropriate sampling strategies for automatic stations.

• Estimation of loads of suspended sediment, total nitrogen and total phosphorus in rivers and also estimation of the changes in nutrient loads from sugar cane under different fertilizer application rates.

• Development of a community-based water quality sampling program to complement the automatic sampling efforts.

• Design of an optimised, long-term water quality monitoring strategy.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
