Stanthorpe Water Assessment and Monitoring Project

The Stanthorpe Water Assessment and Monitoring Project (SWAMP) represents a collaborative effort to monitor the condition and trend of stream water quality in the Severn River and Pikes Creek catchments.

Planning and coordination of the original project has involved many stakeholders from      Growcom, Granite Borders Landcare, Stanthorpe community members, Granite Belt Irrigators Association, Traprock Wool Association, Border Landcare Organic Group, Stanthorpe Shire Council, Queensland Murray Darling Committee in association with the Border Rivers Catchment Management Association, and the Queensland Government through Natural Resources and Water, and Department of Primary Industries.

Funding for equipment and implementation has been through in-kind and other inputs from all the stakeholders as well as from The Stanthorpe River Trust, Envirofund, Bundaberg Rum (provided through the Border Landcare Organic Group) and Queensland Government Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

Water sampling is undertaken on the first week of every second month [even] by trained volunteers.
