Dataset: Derwent Estuary Recreational Water Quality monitoring program - Mid River Swim


Mid River Swim site is collected as part of the Derwent Bay Watch program. Derwent Bay Watch is a collaborative program between councils and state government that tests water quality at 19 bays, coves and other sites around the estuary during summer months. Water samples are collected each Tuesday from the start of December to the end of March and analysed for the faecal indicator bacteria Enterococci (Enteralert method) at the Public health Lab. Because the samples must be cultured, it takes several days to publish the results.
