Every year 200 or more volunteers around the ACT and region visit the same spot month after month to monitor water quality and volunteers have been doing this for more than 20 years.
That data is recorded and collated by Waterwatch and the results published annually in the Catchment Health Indicator Program report, commonly known as the CHIP Report.
This report card on the health of our waterways is not only a valuable tool for natural resource managers and policy-makers but will also play a vital role in measuring the long-term impact of project infrastructure on water quality.
