Sydney Harbour Ferry Monitoring System

Water monitoring in Sydney Harbour

Sydney Harbour Ferry Monitoring System

The Sydney Harbour Ferry Monitoring System is now online measuring dissolved oxygen, temperature, conductivity, chlorophyll a, fDOM and turbidity between Manly and Circular Quay.

The project, initially funded by NSW Local Land Services, is currently being maintained by Aquation.  With some funds from LLS to support a new pump and sonde calibration, we anticipate having the system up and running in summer 2017.   Thanks in advance to City Harbour Ferries for upgrading the plumbing.
