    Hi Peeples
    The following was posted on the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority's Facebook page last Wednesday. There was a follow up post in the afternoon saying that tests had been done and that they showed the dissolved oxygen levels were OK at that time. Nothing has been mentioned since. I wonder if the heat will affect this mass of water as it passes down the Broken River system...and if it will turn deadly! No news is good news at this time!

    Thanx for the info benderzz:) First i'd heard about it,doesn't look good in them pic's .As far as i know,heat lowers dissolved oxygen levels anyway. Let's hope it don't get too low and another kill occurs.

    Hope the increase in flow helps the situation, it does not look too good in the pics. Cheers, creekboy.
