Brief description

The Assessment of River Condition is the first attempt to report on river condition for key river basins across Australia. The integrated assessment provides a basin-wide context and a framework within which decisions and river management priorities can be considered. The assessment incorporates a range of attributes that are considered to indicate key ecological processes at the river reach and basin levels.

Full description

The river basins assessed include areas that contain intensive land use and selected areas of non-intensive land use such as part of the Northern Territory and the western division of the Murray-Darling Basin. Whole river basins were used so that processes such as hydrology and sediment and nutrient movement could be modelled and balanced over entire catchments.

Notes

The two indices developed are an Aquatic Biota Index using macroinvertebrates, and an Environment Index with four sub-indices: catchment disturbance; hydrological disturbance; habitat; and nutrient and suspended sediment load. A range of data types and approaches were used including direct measurements and modelling of nutrient and sediment loads.
