Water Quality Monitoring – County Farm Creek

As a continuation of our water studies, we recently journeyed across the street to County Farm Creek to work with Catie Wytychak, an Environmental Specialist for the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office. Our task was to monitor the quality of water measuring turbidity, phosphates, and nitrates. Afterwards, we discussed possible contributors as well as solutions.

Catie visited our class the following week to discuss our results and play a game that helped demonstrate how water travels in our community and the ways in which contaminants can spread.
