Watts River Summary

The litter trackers that were launched at Watts River were either found on the banks of the river or in riparian vegetation indicating that a high flow event caused some of the trackers to land on the banks. Watts River, at the launch point, is in a forested area and heavily vegetated with several fallen trees and branches in the river. It is unlikely that litter that enters Watts River at this point will flow into the Yarra in the short term.
