The Catchment and Drinking Water Quality Micro Pollutant Monitoring Program was launched in mid-2014 with the aim of improving the characterisation and understanding of the micro-pollutant risk profile in source water reservoirs. The monitoring program uses passive sampling techniques to measure a wide range of polar and non-polar organic contaminants in thirty five reservoirs in South East Queensland (SEQ). The project aims to provide an insight into the water quality of the target reservoirs through comparison with drinking water quality guidelines.
