Waterway pollutants – where do we start?
Melbourne’s rivers, wetlands and bays are all affected by a variety of pollutants. Different land uses and activities in urban and rural areas generate different types of pollution and it is essential to identify the sources and impacts of high risk pollutants to protect ecological, social and amenity values.
This project aims to:
Synopsis complete. The most significant land use for pollutants is from industrial catchments. Other land uses that generate high pollutant runoff are residential, horticultural, grassland and wastewater discharges.
