Document title

The impact of varying rainfall conditions on the quality of runoff entering Wamberal Lagoon, New South Wales, Australia

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Differences in the water quality of 6 tributaries to the lagoon following wet and dry weather periods are compared for 19 parameters, including nutrients and toxicant metals. The results suggest that dry weather flows tend to transport pollutants at higher concentrations but have lower total pollutant loads than wet weather flows. Therefore, effective management of water quality in coastal lagoons such as Wamberal Lagoon requires the monitoring of runoff following wet weather events in association with stronger controls on pollutant point sources and the retardance of wet weather flows into the lagoon through the use of devices such as retention ponds and constructed wetlands
