    The Water Institute tasks included bathymetric mapping, vegetation surveys and habitat assessment. These tasks served as a foundation for anticipated sampling tasks involved in a wider study by other organizations which was to include fish sampling, benthic chlorophyll sampling, macroinvertebrate sampling and water quality sampling.
