ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The completion of this monitoring report represents the conclusion of a successful multidisciplinary, multi-agency and cross-government approach to a significant environmental problem and also marks the disbandment of the Rum Jungle Monitoring Committee. The current Chair of the Committee, Rod Applegate, extends his thanks to the various members of the committee who have contributed their considerable professionalism and scientific expertise to a challenging project, which has incorporated differing management styles and directions over the last twelve years. Past and Present Members include: Karen Powell Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources (formerly Commonwealth Department of Primary Industries and Energy) Peter King Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources Ian Smith Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Environment (formerly Department of Lands, Planning and Environment) Michael Lawton Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Environment Maria Kraatz (formerly) Department of Lands, Planning and Environment John Verhoeven (formerly) Power and Water Authority Kevin Boland (formerly) Power and Water Authority John Bennett Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation John Twining Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation The Committee extends their thanks to the many people who have been involved in monitoring and maintenance operations at the site over the last twelve years. Various contributions have also been made over this last five year monitoring period. John Twining, Scott Markich and Cyrus Edwards are grateful to Dr Karen Coombes of the NT Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences who confirmed or corrected our identifications. The collected animals were aged by a count of the annual shell rings under transmitted light by Dr Chris Humphrey (eriss). We also acknowledge his assistance in collection of the mussels and in providing expert advice on the biology of the species. Maria Kraatz and Alan Norrington thank the many people who have contributed to site maintenance including Gary Hillen, Col Creaser and Brendan Ewing. Maria Kraatz also extends her thanks to Rod Applegate for his considerable assistance in formulating the discussion regarding future management and monitoring and recognises that she just couldnt have done it without him! Michael Lawton wishes to thank the numerous staff of the (former) Water Resources Division within the NT Government who contributed to the collection and collation of hydrographic and water quality data over the life of the project. Also, in particular to Ms Jayne Hume for her provision of an orderly support service for chemical analysis. The editor would like to thank Rod Applegate, Peter King, Jackie Stanger and all the authors for their assistance in getting the report to publication.
