Similar seasonal variations in suspended-sediment transport have been observed in other estuarine tributaries. In the Tavy sub-estuary of Tamar Estuary, Uncles and Stephens () observed landward.

This Water Quality Improvement Plan (WQIP) has been developed for the greater Tamar Estuary and Esk Rivers (TEER) catchment area to provide a comprehensive whole-of-catchment picture of water quality in the Tamar River estuary and its tributaries. Develop . The River Health Action Plan is the first output from the Tamar Estuary Management Taskforce. The Plan presents the Taskforce's recommendations for an investment plan to improve public health in the Launceston to Legana zone of the Estuary through actions both in the catchment and on the combined sewerage and stormwater system.
