Abstract

This post-survey report provides an account of the procedures undertaken during the survey and provides the metadata and analytical results of the sediment samples. The analytical results are here compared to default sediment quality guideline values and upper guideline values for sediment toxicants in the Australian and New Zealand Guidelines for Fresh and Marine Water Quality (ANZG, 2018). Where applicable, and some other preliminary results are also discussed.
