Wastewater monitoring

Queensland Health partnered with researchers from the University of Queensland and the CSIRO to deliver a wastewater surveillance program for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The results from this program added to the information obtained through clinical testing and has enhanced Queensland Health’s already comprehensive response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The wastewater dashboard has been retired but wastewater surveillance continues in a number of locations throughout Queensland. Historic data can be accessed on the Queensland Open Data portal.
