Lower Yarra River (Richmond) : Launch date - 16 December 2019

Lower Yarra River Summary

Four out of the five litter trackers showed upstream and downstream movements in the Yarra indicating that this part of the Yarra near Richmond is tidal. Four litter trackers were captured by litter traps in the Yarra. This indicates that the litter traps in the Yarra are effective in trapping litter. One litter tracker was trapped in riparian vegetation.
