Water Monitoring and Assessment
As part of the State's efforts to ensure the sustainability of agricultural practices, chemical usage is being reduced and best practices for the use of chemicals have been adopted. Nevertheless, there are community concerns about the level of chemical usage and of the impacts of chemical pollution on industry, human health and the environment. Water quality monitoring programs provide the community and industry with the information to respond to these concerns.
Water quality and water quantity information is collected to assist management decisions about allocation, river condition, water quality and aquatic ecosystems.The Water Information System of Tasmania allows you to search for data relating to water flow, water quality, groundwater and natural freshwater values. You can also search for water entitlement and dam permit information.
