Water Quality Forum

SOMR with Southern Cross University and the University of New England will present results of long-term monitoring focused on arsenic and antimony in the Macleay River at Bellbrook.

At the Forum, scientists from Southern Cross and New England University will discuss the seasonal behaviour of arsenic and antimony, answering questions such as how much is being transported downstream, when, in what form, and what are key controls that regulate that transport.

They will also examine the impacts of the catastrophic 2019 bushfires on water quality in the Macleay River and look at how the river recovered from this extreme event.

7th August, 5:00 pm for a light supper, talks from 6-8pm at the Anglican Church Hall, 30 Kemp Street, West Kempsey
