Ten end-of-valley salinity target sites located in the Queensland and northern New South Wales sections of the Murray-Darling Basin. These sites are capable of capturing most end-of-valley flows and are equipped with time-series flow and electrical conductivity monitoring. Four interpretive sites are also used. End-of-valley sites are located downstream of irrigation.
