Ambient surface water quality in Queensland: Summary reports
The Surface Water Ambient Network (SWAN) monitoring program has been in operation since 1990. It is a long-term, surface water, ambient water quality monitoring program undertaken across Queensland. The information generated by this program is of significant value at a variety of scales (e.g. site, catchment, bio-province and state).
The report provides an overview of surface water quality condition for aquatic environments in nine aquatic ecosystem provinces of Queensland using water quality data collected from July 2004 to June 2008. Trend analysis was conducted from 1998 to 2008. Data was principally gathered through the statewide SWAN program, however to increase the amount of data available, additional data from compatible projects were also included in the analysis.
The aim of this report is to provide broad-scale condition and trend information on Queensland's surface water quality.
