Review of Environmental Factors - "Aquatic" - Junction Bridge Tumut River - M/04/694 - M/BUS/69
MDFRC Consultancy Report
A survey of the Tumut River 300 metres either side of Junction Bridge was carried out on Thursday, 19 February 2004. The river was sampled for macroinvertebrates and aquatic plants. Flows and depth precluded the sampling of fish using electro fishing equipment. The aquatic community in the natural drainage system of the lower Murray River catchment is listed under NSW legislation as an “endangered aquatic community” (http://www.fishreies.nsw.gov.au/fsc/recommend/FR16-MR-EEC.pdf). This includes the Tumut River downstream of Blowering Dam. Therefore a NSW Fisheries 8 point test needs to be completed (Appendix 1). Criteria for determining the need for and level of environmental impact assessment in Australia (ANZECC Criteria) has also been addressed (Appendix 2).
