Similar to last report, the pH meter needed a large correction during calibration. This time a shift of about 0.5 pH in the opposite direction ie from pH 7.5.    pH values??

Very small flow upstream of Castlemaine WWTP TWW outflow.

For first time noticed a lot of algal/weed grwoth along the creek in this vicinity. A consequence of the on-goinng high phosphorus levels in the creek?
