Anglesea River has a unique catchment geology and sediment layer which produces acidic catchment flow. This was evident during September 2010, when abnormally high levels of acidic water resulted in fish deaths in the river. Furthermore, low pH (acidity) in Anglesea River can disrupt both the ecological balance within the system and the recreational activities upon the waterway.
