Targeted Monitoring ProgramThe targeted monitoring component of the ASCHEM program aims to provide short term intensive studies as a means to assess the extent and nature of chemical contamination on a sub-catchment scale. These studies are based on information received either through the routine monitoring program, chemical audits, and investigations that warrants a greater focus on monitoring.
Designed to address concerns and issues specific to the catchment upon which it is based, these short term studies are defined by a monitoring process where temporal and spatial monitoring is generally more frequent and targeted than that which occurs during routine monitoring (e.g. to specific crops and/or pesticides).
Proposed Inaugural Targeted Study 2012
It is anticipated that the first inaugural targeted study will be based upon characterisation of MCPA in the Duck River Catchment during seasonal pasture application in 2012.
This web page will be updated accordingly upon commencement of the project.
