Section 6 Recommendation
It is recommended that the following data analysis and reporting be undertaken so that the result of this
investigation can be fully interpreted and presented to the community, and incorporated into the DoW /
DEC water management plans.
- Geochemical interpretation on nutrient transformation and movement.
- Water quality data be plotted to show seasonal variation.
- Nutrient loading calculation - This will based on groundwater flux and nutrient concentration. A
2-D finite element model can be used to simulate the groundwater flow process. It is a very
important environmental indicator for monitoring and assessing land use impacts.
- Reporting - It is proposed that the result from this investigation be written up as a report. All data
and maps will be produced with the URS standard, and the data format will be consistent with the
DoW database and GIS.
The above proposed work will require additional funds. An estimated cost is listed below.
