Streamwatch is a project to encourage involvement in chemical analysis using simple analytical test kits which can be taken into the field to measure various parameters and thus provide information on the health of local streams and ponds.

The current kits can be used to measure temperature, pH, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, nitrate and hardness although the N.W. Region Committee is currently investigating extending the measurement capabilities of these kits.

We have recently purchased several test kits and these are available on loan (free of charge) to schools, community groups and other organisations in the region. We hope to collate and publish the results obtained by users on this website.

If you require further information or would like to borrow one of these kits please contact the Hon. Secretary of the region at:
