Council Clarification Over Salty Groundwater.

Received a call from the Head Engineer Steve Mc Veigh today to clarify the concern over the conflicting information in the salt water data.

He advised that the data displayed was a limited graphical representation of the changes in salt hence the confusion over the timing of tides. Steven confirmed that underlying data that Griffith analysed confirmed groundwater tidal influence from the canal.

In relation to improved monitoring of salt inputs, the difficulty of monitoring was confirmed but given the trend of increasing salt and the negative effects, a clearer understanding is required.
