Sediment attributes and urban development - analysis of water quality effects

Publication date:  September 2019
Publication reference number:  CR 367

This report builds upon the findings of Morphum's report 2, Sediment attributes and urban development - plan compilation and review (see link below under Related publications).

It analyses water quality data from the case studies to assess the effect of urban development on in-stream indicators of suspended fine sediment, primarily turbidity and total suspsended sediment. Where available, baseline monitoring data from before development was compared with monitoring undertaken during construction and following construction.
