Phosphorous reading uncertain. The recorded reading was second attempt. Usually it is the Enders Bridge recording the uncertain high reading but I did Stoney Creek first this time so there could be something in that. I do flush out the tube each time.

Although low flow, Stoney Creek measuring point seems to show stronger flow than Coliban River at Enders Bridge (see comment for this date on Enders Bridge site).

Takes forever for EC meter to equilibrate for water temp so can only give "less than" amounts.

All recorded air temperatures are from the local Trentham weather site.
