Groundwater dependent ecosystem monitoring
Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula has commenced monitoring Red gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) populations in Musgrave (Polda, Bellevue and Bramfield) and Southern Basins (Uley Wanilla) Prescribed Wells Areas. We also monitor a control site outside of a Prescribed Wells Area near Coulta. This monitoring occurs each spring and will provide an understanding of the impacts of groundwater use on ecosystem health. Details of the methods used to determine Red gum health are outlined in the Manual for the visual assessment of lower River Murray floodplain trees: River Red Gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis).
Monitoring data from these surveys can be accessed via the interactive map below (zoom in closer to see more).
