Data to solve seagrass problem

Recording equipment has been installed at Jurien Bay in an effort to solve the region's water quality and seagrass accumulation issues.

WA Transport Minister Dean Nalder today announced new monitoring equipment was set up at the Jurien Bay boat harbour to collect data about wind and wave conditions.

He said the data would be used in computer modelling to find long term solutions to the region's environmental issues.

The Department of Transport installed an acoustic, wave and current device on the seabed outside the harbour to record data.

Further equipment is expected to be installed at the harbour this month, including a wind data station.

The Jurien Boat Harbour steering committee, set up earlier this year, recommended the new equipment be installed.
