                                      General water quality data in waters from SA catchment sources

                                      This dataset covers pH, turbidity (NTU), conductivity (uS/cm), organics concentration (measured as dissolved organic carbon, mg/L) and organics characterization [UV absorbance @ 254 nm (cm-1) and colour @ 456 nm (Hazen unit)]. The dataset is part of a collection involving experiments or data collected to investigate the influences of vegetation and soil texture on the nutrient concentrations and the concentration and character of organics present in catchment waters of drinking supply reservoir in the context of their treatability by conventional (coagulation, flocculation and disinfection) treatment processes. Water samples (runoff and subsurface) were collected from zero order catchments having distinct vegetative cover (Australian native vegetation, pine plantation, grasslands) and contrasting texture of the surface soil horizon. Surface water samples were also collected from the Myponga River and Myponga Reservoir. The data presented is the result of a field scale based investigation using natural source water and does not reflect the water quality of product water from a full-scale drinking water treatment plant. This dataset is provided by the University of South Australia (UniSA). All data in this dataset was collected as part of the Australian Research Council project, ARC Linkage-LP110200208.
