  • 2.  The overall health of the river is okay.  For one example; dissolved oxygen is okay because the percent that was needed to make it healthy is around 90% and groups tests were 47%, 84%, 135%, and 95%.  Also the pH was very good because 1-6 is acidic, 7 in neutral, and 8-14 is basic. Test results were 7, 7-8, 8, 7, and 8.  PO4 isn’t very good for plants and animals. PO4 is what allows plants and animals to grow and function. The PO4 for the Mullet river is 0, so that means that the Mullet river isn’t good for plants and animals to be around.  Total Solids varies on which conditions the site you are testing is in. The average answer was around. 11,000 mg/liter
  • 3.  Turbidity is pretty good because the higher the number you get means the better turbidity. Our feet amounts were 1’9”, 2’7”, 1’10”, 8”, 12”, 1’10”, 3’6”, 3’11”, and 3’6”.  NO3 is kind of alright because when the number is less than 1 mg/L, the water is at normal conditions and is okay for fish to live in. Our amounts were 2.053 mg/L and 1.76 mg/L.  Temperature is okay because it effects the dissolved oxygen in the water. When the water is warmer it is less capable of holding dissolved oxygen. The temperatures we got were 18*, 19*, 28*, 20*, 23*, 28*, and 23*.  B.O.D is bad because the test started out as 10, and it went down 10 and that is very bad because it means that the river is very polluted.  The reason for difference are the different times we took tests and different areas.
  • 4.  pH- 7, 7-8, 8, and 7-8.  Po4- 0, 0, 0, and 0.  Turbidity 1’9”, 2’7”, 1’10”, 8”, 12”, 1’10”, 3’11”, 3’6”, and 3’6”.  NO3- 2.053 mg/L, and 1.76 mg/L.  Dissolved oxygen- 82%, 47%, 84%, 135%, 95%, 100%, 135%, and 130.5%.  Temperature- 18*C, 19*C, 28*C, 20*C, 23*C, 28*C, 23*C, and 20*C.  B.O.D- 100% (10 used)  Total Solids- 14,000mg/liter, 1,000 mg/liter, 20,000 mg/liter, 10,000mg/liter, and 2,000 mg/liter
  • 5.  Sources are the dump and landfill below Riverview and the junk getting into the river causing the water to pollute. Collected data is cans, bags, and others.  Another source is the sun because it heats the water which changes the temperature and the temperature affects about everything such as dissolved oxygen and pH.
  • 6.  You can improve the current conditions by draining the river and cleaning out the junk at the bottom and letting the mullet lake refill the river.  A way to maintain or just not do anything to the river, the current conditions by not changing anything. If you were to do that, eventually it could become a swamp.
