New research in the Canning River – Kent Street Weir Pool

New research being conducted by the DBCA Rivers and Estuaries Science Program is aiming to understand the light environment in the Kent Street Weir Pool and how it may affect the growth of submerged plants. The research involves the installation of light loggers attached to four white floats at four locations above the weir (see picture). If you see them please do not touch them as any interference can impact the quality of the data they are collecting. It’s expected the light loggers and floats will remain in the river throughout September. If you have any questions please contact
