What is your wish for this project?
We are creating educated eyes and noses so that citizens can learn to identify and recognize potential issues that could affect water quality. It is our wish that once people learn about how changes in the quality of water affects life in the stream that they will do more to help protect our stream ecosystem.
How did it go?
The project was very successful. We were able to identify a location for the remote water quality monitoring. We got everything working technical with the water monitoring system. We have begun collecting water quality data on temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH and conductivity. We submit this data to www.earthecho.org and will continue to do so. This project will continue to be a component of our science curriculum for future classes as well
