Reporting Mechanism

The Waterways Monitoring Reports process was developed by the Water Resources Division of the Department as a mechanism to report on the data it collects from Tasmania's rivers and streams as part of its Baseline Monitoring Network.

This network has been designed to provide current data on streamflow, water quality and riverine health that will support planning and decision-making processes for water management agencies, Tasmania's three Natural Resource Management regions and locally focused catchment groups that monitor Tasmanian waterways or have an interest in water information.


Annual Reporting

The Waterways Reports were published on an annual basis between 2004 and 2008 to provide information on a catchment basis for 40 of the 48 Tasmanian Land and Water Management Catchments.

For each of the catchments, the reports include:
1. A land-use map and summary information about the catchment
2. Streamflow and water allocation information
3. Water quality data for monitoring stations located in the catchment
4. A report on 'riverine health' for monitoring sites located in the catchment

This information has assisted in gauging Tasmania's environmental performance against the Tasmania Together Environmental Benchmarks (24.7.1 and 24.7.2) and supports Tasmania's contribution to the 'State of Environment' report and other national reporting frameworks.

The information that underpins the Waterway Reports is still collected and is available through Water Information Systems of Tasmania (WIST). Actual reporting of this information ceased with the production of the 2008 series.
