As custodian of the channel, Outer Harbor and the Port River, Flinders Ports is acutely aware of the need to care for our waterways, and especially so during a project such as the Outer Harbor Channel Widening Project.
As part of the project, Flinders Ports is undertaking ongoing environmental monitoring of turbidity (the amount of suspended sediments in the water).
For more information about the monitoring and reporting measures, please see the Resources page, which includes links to the EPA Dredge Licence, the Dredge Management Plan and Environmental Monitoring Program.
The monitoring data has been provided to help the stakeholders and the community understand activities in the water and associated environmental effects. The turbidity graphs and gauges are updated every hour, and the satellite maps are updated daily.
