Ecosystem Health Monitoring Program (Freshwater)

Framework Type: 

Publication Year: 

The information collected in the EHMP is used to advise councils and land managers on areas of declining health, report on the effects of different land uses, and evaluate the effectiveness of management actions aimed at improving and protecting aquatic ecosystems. The EHMP uses rigorous science to measure waterway health using a broad range of biological, physical and chemical indicators of ecosystem health. These indicators were chosen because they provide essential information about the condition of SEQ’s waterways.
