Water Quality Analysis of the Dee River and a Nearby Bore

A simple water analysis I did of the Dee River last year (PDF), testing the pH, conductivity and total dissolved solids (TDS). A summary of the results are shown below.

Water Quality Test Dee River Sample Bore Water Sample
pH 5.8 7.0
Total Dissolved Solids (measured by evaporation) 2050 mg/L 950 mg/L
Conductivity (measured by probe) 2120 mS/cm 1602 mS/cm

But as can be seen from the photos below, the Dee River is still far from healthy.
