Impacts of different land uses on local catchments

This resource is a virtual site that focuses on the impact that land uses have on the local catchments of Lismore, Northern NSW, specifically focusing on the local catchment and Water Management.

Aims to gather data on water quality using samples from a number of sites in the catchment areas to enable assessment of the impacts of different land uses (forests, agriculture, urbanisation) on water quality.
