Full description

The NSW Government WaterInfo website contains a range of provisional data from a range of State Government agencies concerning NSW rivers and water bodies. This data is generally used for the management of our rivers, storages and the surrounding environment.

Some of the data, since it is measured in the field, is close to real-time. This includes water levels, flow and continuous electrical conductivity (used to assess salinity levels).

Other water quality information is determined by sampling, and is updated nightly when laboratory analyses are complete. Water quality is measured for a variety of projects, each producing purpose-built datasets.

An appropriate level of care needs to be taken when using information from this site. Consideration of the purpose for which the data was collected is required. Time constraints have also meant that rigorous quality control checks have not been undertaken on some of the datasets.

Lineage

Errors may be identified by applying the following data checks:

* A level, flow or volume value changes while dependent data is unchanged, e.g. a gauge height value changes but the corresponding flow does not.
* A daily value is identical to a number of its previous values, when variation would normally be expected.
* There is a large, unexpected change from one value to the next.
* A value, especially a level, drops to zero.
* A value is negative.
* A value does not perform as expected, e.g. gauge heights and flows should recede following a high flow.
