Salty Lagoon Channel

Salty Lagoon Channel

An artificial channel appeared in the 1970's, believed to have been dug to aid duck hunter's entry into Salty Lagoon.

The ecosystem has been monitored by automatic dataloggers continuously at 15 minute intervals for water quality indicators since March 2007.

In June 2012, phase 1 of the construction project to close the artificial channel was finally completed. Phase 2 site revegatation followed begining in August 2012 allowing Bandjalang women to replant the area.  Since close there has been vast improvements in water quality and abundance of bird life.
