Water quality of northern Australia and its impact on animal health- Meat & Livestock Australia

Meat and Livestock Australia engaged EEI to author a book on Water Quality of Northern Australia and its impact on ruminant health and productivity. The project included review of water quality of groundwater resources of northern Australia, and its impact of livestock health. In collaboration with faculty from Veterinary School of Murdoch University, this project assessed the groundwater quality, mapped the groundwater quality profile and provided solutions for treatment of those parameters that exceeded the limits for livestock. Also, the project covered the on-site testing procedure for regular assessment of groundwater quality that can be carried out by producers.
