Macleay River at Turners Flat

Ecohealth report card on the Macleay's waterways

A new report card, showing a snapshot of the health of waterways in the Macleay Catchment, has been launched in Kempsey.

It measures key indicators of aquatic ecosystem health and compares results against national guidelines to determine how healthy rivers and estuaries are for the plants and animals that live in them.

The assessment covered 44 sites across the Macleay Catchment, which encompasses sub-catchment areas within Walcha, Armidale Dumaresq and Kempsey Local Government Areas, 32 freshwater and 12 estuarine sites, and reflects the average health of those river systems over a 12-month period.
