There are a large number of existing monitoring programs in the region with differing purposes. Data availability within these programs was assessed when the environmental indicators were developed in 2014.
Data was available for freshwater, estuarine, wetland and marine systems and consequently report card indicators include water quality parameters; water flow and hydrology information; fauna assessment data; and habitat extent and modification.
Greyed out sections of the results coasters indicate either data is not available for that specific indicator, or that a methodology has not been finalised to convert existing data into a report card grade.
