​​​​River Health is a community-based monitoring program to assess the health of the Georges and Cooks Rivers. ​

The program has been designed to monitor water quality, populations of macroinvertebrates and riparian vegetation within these two catchments. The valuable information is then used by us at Council and the Catchme​nt Management Authority to make important natural resource management decisions, such as targeting areas for preservation and restoration. 

Volunteers are encouraged to get together to help with sampling. The data collected from each sampling event is used to produce River Health Report Cards which interprets and presents the results of the data collected and provides an overall indication of the river's health.
