Water testing in the Capertee Valley for residents.

Capertee Valley Landcare invites residents to test their water.


We’ll be at the Glen Alice Hall next Friday 26 Feb at 3pm until 4.30pm with our water testing kit.
You’re welcome to bring along a sample:
We can test for:
pH
Electrical Conductivity (EC) – salinity
Turbidity

We’ll want to know the type of water source (dam, bore, creek etc) and its location.

Bring about 500ml in a clean container, rinse it out with the water that you’re testing three times.
If you’re collecting from a stream, try to take it from the centre of the running water and submerged about 20ml.
We’d like to gradually construct a picture of water quality throughout the valley. If you want to help achieve this, then take some samples from streams and bring them along.
