Description / Abstract: Summary Stream flow and water quality measurements were made along the reaches of the Katherine and Daly Rivers in early June 2014. The flow increases progressively downstream with a maximum flow measured of 43.7 cumecs in the Daly River at Mount Nancar. The results illustrate the contribution of flows from the different aquifers and sub catchments relative to the total runoff in the Daly River. The June 2014 stream flows are well above the average June/July flows from 1961 to 2012 at the individual monitoring sites. The stream flow measurements do indicate that there is a reduction in base flows over the last four years. Groundwater levels were not monitored during this period. Aim To perform beginning of the dry stream flow and water quality measurements in the Katherine and Daly River catchments encompassing the greater part of the Tindall Limestone and Oolloo aquifers. The June monitoring exercise is intended to provide baseline information of base flow conditions for evaluation against end of dry season results.
