What is QA/QC Fortnight?

31st August - 13th September 2015

Each year, Waterwatch Victoria hosts QA/QC (Quality Assurance/Quality Control) fortnight.

Waterwatch coordinators and monitors are invited to test a range of 'mystery samples' prepared by NATA-acredited laboratories to test their monitoring competencies. Electrical Conductivity, Turbidity, pH and Reactive Phosphorus samples are available.


This event is an opportunity for participants to assess their monitoring competencies, and take steps towards improving the accuracy of their monitoring data.

To find out how to participate in QA/QC fortnight, contact your regional Waterwatch coordinator.
