Wetland Monitoring

Wetland monitoring

An exciting new project in collaborative research between Chris Derry of School of Science (opens in a new window) and Sydney Water Corporation (opens in a new window) is developing a long-term monitoring program to understand more about the nutrient removal performance of mature operational stormwater wetlands, such as that established on Hawkesbury campus.

This will potentially inform the manner in which ‘nutrient offsets’ can be operationalised as part of a broader Nutrient Offset Program by the NSW Environmental Protection Authority (opens in a new window). It is expected that this will provide a substantive platform for student research projects, and a postgraduate Alumnus is currently working as a Technical officer to establish the pilot stages of the research program.
