Environmental Report

Redbank Communities have engaged ALS Hydrographics Penrith to conduct a monthly water quality sampling on 15 site in and around Redbank creek in North Richmond.

The sites were selected and then review by ALS with the intention of capturing the water quality from upstream of the Redbank the site, within the site area and downstream from the Redbank site. (The map below shows the testings areas) Further wet weather sampling is conducted by ALS if there is more than 10mm of rain within the North Richmond catchment area, an additional test is undertaken if there is 50mm within a 5 day period.

ALS Hydographics use the weather station at the RAAF base to determine the rainfall within the area.

The data consists of in situ field readings for Temperature (°C), Conductivity (µS/cm), Dissolved Oxygen (% & mg/L), pH and Turbidity (NTU). Further Laboratory testing for Suspended Solids, Nitrogen and phosphorus is undertaken after the samples from the 15 testing locations.   The below tab has all the reports submitted to date by ALS, noting additional sites were added (to arrive at an overall test number of 15) to assist in capturing the overall water quality of the surrounding areas.
