The Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee

TPS instruments are the preferred choice of water testing equipment used by the committee and its volunteers, due to the meters accuracy and simplicity.
The Mary River Catchment is a major river system of South East Queensland and the Wide Bay Burnett regions, spanning across 9595 square kilometers. It is one of most complex catchments in Queensland, joined by nineteen tributaries and is home to a diverse range of native flora and fauna. The Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee (MRCCC) is a non profit organisation who are devoted to promoting and maintaining sustainability within the catchment area by working with the community through education, awareness and planning.
The dedicated MRCCC Waterwatch volunteers conduct monthly water tests within areas of the catchment in order to monitor water quality and to record any observed changes over time. Furthermore, observations of the local aquatic fauna and general river flow conditions are also recorded. TPS instruments are the preferred choice of water testing equipment used by the committee and its volunteers, due to the meters accuracy and simplicity.
The instruments currently being used are the durable and waterproof WP-81 meters to accurately measure temperature, pH, total dissolved salts, salinity and ORP. The waterproof WP-82Y meters are also being used to measure the dissolved oxygen levels in the catchment. The popular 90FLT multiparameter meter is also frequently used by the committee as it measures turbidity in addition to all other important parameters.
The committee also plays a valuable role in monitoring threatened aquatic and terrestrial fauna species such as frogs, fish, turtles and koalas. The MRCCC conduct many programs which aim to protect and rehabilitate ecosystems to ensure biodiversity is conserved and sustainable practices are maintained.
