A report on sediment sampling of the Blue Lake, Mount Gambier, South Australia and the associated research program is available to be downloaded. The report details the main activities and discoveries of the sediment collection and diving research that was conducted over two weekends in February and March of 2008. Using divers to collect sediment samples from the bottom of the Blue Lake the report sought to analyse what ramifications land-use, and stormwater in particular, might have on the Blue Lake and groundwater within the Blue Lake Catchment Management Zone.
