Information regarding the Upper Barwon River and Boundary Creek low pH event June/July 2018

pH levels improving in the upper Barwon River- 17th August 2018

Community members and landholders along Boundary Creek and the Barwon River near Birregurra are advised that pH levels in the upper Barwon River are improving.

Monitoring further downstream at Winchelsea showed that pH is within the normal range for the Barwon River. Low pH levels continue in Boundary Creek.

The source of the low pH water in Boundary Creek is likely to be acid sulphate soils in Big Swamp that have previously dried out and then been soaked by heavy rainfall, flushing low pH water into Boundary Creek.
