Results explained

Notable increases in the average level of turbidity negatively affected the water quality grade in Lake Munmorah for 2014. Whilst seagrass depth range remained good and algal levels were stable the overall grade was reduced as a result of the increases in turbidity.

Results explained

The ecological health of Lake Munmorah improved from good in 2012 to excellent in 2013. This was as a result of improvements in algal (chlorophyll-a) and turbidity levels, and an increase in seagrass depth range.

Results explained

The ecological health in Lake Munmorah was good with improved results achieved since 2010. Water clarity was good with relatively low turbidity levels and moderate seagrass depth range. Unfortunately, high summer rainfalls contributed to elevations in algal (chloraphyll-a) levels.
