Water Monitoring Volunteers 

Our volunteer-based water quality monitoring group, the Georges River Watchers, undertake water quality testing on a monthly basis and collect samples from various sites across the local area. By working together, we can protect the natural environment and raise awareness of pollution issues in the community. 

No previous experience or qualifications are required and we encourage anyone with an interest in protecting the environment to get involved.  

If you would like to find out more, contact Council.
