Survey/Project Name: McBride Swamp Aquatic Habitat Monitoring
Abstract: McBride Swamp has been potentially drained by the Fairview Drain. A regulator system has been installed and a management plan prepared to ensure it receives annual inundation. A series of photopoints, water quality monitoring and aquatic herbland cover datasets have been set up. Data collected during 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001.
