Water quality issues for paddlers. Click here for more information
YOUR HEALTH & SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
Prior to each Australia Day Competition, NDCC takes water quality samples and has them tested by the Australian Water Quality Center (in accordance with Australian Standards).
3 microbiology tests are taken (approximately, 28, 21 & 10 days) prior to the competition. The test determines the level of an indicator organism in the water which is used to classify the water quality. However, it takes 3 working days for preliminary results of the water testing to be received and 5 working days for final results. This of course means that the results of the water quality testing are not available in real time.
The 5 levels of water quality that are recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NH&MRC) are as follows:
Very good, Good, Fair, Poor and Very Poor.
In accordance with the NH&MRC Guidelines the water quality at Mawson Lakes can then be classified in a traffic light system, Green, Amber, Red.
1 algal test is taken approx 28 days prior to the competition
The algal test is to detect harmful algea and cyanobacteria in the water sample. All recreational water (and particularly water in lakes, streams and waterways) contain algea and cyanobacteria to varying concentrations. The tests are taken to identify if concentrations that may be harmful to humans are present.
Along-side the rigorous water testing regime, NDCC also uses a visual inspection regime.
The reason for using a visual inspection regime (also recommended by NH&MRC) is to provide real time analysis of the water quality.
Visual inspections are carried out in conjunction with the collection of each water sample for testing as well as:
24 hours prior to the competition; and prior to each days play of the competition.
