  • When we tested for the ph of thewater we got a 7. Seven is consideredbasic or the normal level of a river orstream.
  • We measured the turbidity in two feetof water and for the total feet of turbidityit ended up being 1.5 feet turbidity.
  • When we measured the totalphosphate we got a measurement of0mg/liter.
  •  Paramecium Macrocyclops Daphnia Horse fly larva Fingernail clam Backswimmer Riffle Beetle larva
  • The overall health of the river in ourarea is not bad but not good at thesame time. Phosphates are an esentalthing that plants need to grow. We needmore of this in the river. Phosphates areproduced by the remains of the plantsand animals in the river. On the otherhand the ph of the river is not acidy it’sat the normal level of 7.
  • The river could improve it’s turbidity. Theturbidity is the amount of little dirt particlesfloating around in the river. If there are a lotof these particles in the water it makes ithard for fish to breath because the particlesclog their gills and cause them to die. It’salso a problem for plants because theparticles block the sunlight from getting tothem. Most of the particles in the river arerunoff from farm fields to reduce this wecould have infiltration trenches. Infiltrationtrenches are filled with rocks so the runoff isstored in the cracks between the rocks. Therunoff slowly filters back into the ground.
