The Water note series provides a general guide to river and wetland ecology, restoration and management. They are designed to complement the more comprehensive and technical River restoration manual.
Water Notes can be viewed or downloaded from the list below and are also available as a set on disc from the Department of Water library.
Some water notes refer to wetland management. For more detailed current information about wetland management, see A guide to managing and restoring wetlands in Western Australia (available on the Department of Parks and Wildlife website).
