Updates on projects in Queensland and the Northern Territory.
Andy Markham has been assessing the response of streams in the Lockyer Valley to the devastating floods of 2011 and 2012. The floods triggered a new phase of erosion and sedimentation processes that have altered the morphology and hydraulics of the creeks. This information will be used for future flood resilience and infrastructure planning.
Hydrobiology continues its work with abandoned mines and will be embarking on a two year programme at the Rum Jungle site in the Northern Territory to assist with site rehabilitation. Work will include monitoring, impact assessment, derivation of locally ‐ derived water quality guidelines in collaboration with the NT Government and Traditional Owners.
