State of Rivers Reports

Photograph of Great Forester River - tree-lined, shallow with large rocks in the stream of flow.The State of River Reports provided information on the quality, quantity and ecosystem health of Tasmanian waterways up until 2003. Since then the Waterways Monitoring Reports report on the data collected from Tasmania's rivers and streams as part of the Baseline Monitoring Network.

State of Rivers reports are a compilation of data from routine monitoring and investigative studies designed to describe the condition of water quality, hydrology, river habitat and riverine health at a catchment scale. The information from these four areas are analysed and reported in an integrated way to help identify issues for management and formulate potential actions that might alleviate problems in the future.

Please note: The following reports are all in a print-friendly PDF format. The very large reports (such as South Esk Basin) have been divided into a series of smaller PDF files. The larger files have been optimised for download time and some of the maps contained within them may have lost clarity. If you require a print-quality PDF version, please contact the Administrative Assistant listed below.
