Spotless Facility Services Pty Ltd - Contract Research

TFTA Ambient Water Quality Monitoring Program (2016/2017)

Indicative Funding
$510,977 over 2 years
This project continues the long standing monitoring that TropWATER has undertaken for Defence that incorporates water quality (including standard physio chemical, nutrients and metals), aquatic ecosystems on the Townsville Field Training Area. It will also report on previous years monitoring (2013/2014 and 2014/2015) and provide an overall review of ambient monitoring at TFTA in light of more than 20 years of ambient water quality monitoring data.

Jaragun Pty Ltd - Contract Research

Monitoring and Evaluation Plan, Glush Weed (H,costata) Control in the Russell River Catchment Project

Indicative Funding
$85,455 over 5 years
Glush Weed is a highly invasive aquatic plant that forms dense stands which displace native flora and debilitate native fauna by altering their natural habitat. This monitoring framework assesses improvements to aquatic ecosystem health as a result of the control of Glus Weed in the Russell River catchment between 2014 and 2018. Outcomes include: documentation of the impacts of Glush Weed on Water quality and biotic communities, development of a baseline dataset for measuring future changes in condition and health of the waterway and, an assessment of changes in condition and health of waterways with reference to baseline datasets.

James Maternity Funding

Indicative Funding
This funding is to provide support for during and when I return from maternity leave and will allow me to concentrate on my research efforts, delegate non-specialist tasks and utilize my research skills to their best advantage. The funding will be used to support a research assistant working on a project investigating how historical and contemporary disturbances from livestock, military usage and fire history impact upon ambient water quality and biotic indices against a backdrop of high inter and intra annual variation in rainfall and associated stream flows.
