Program description:
Freeport High School's Marine Science classes take weekly water samples and air and water temperature readings in the tidal flow region between Woodcleft Canal (a highly developed commercial area) and the bay. By analyzing the samples for chemical parameters and coliform bacteria, we hope to learn more about the ecosystem and its reactions to human activities, and to measure water quality and discharge complicity.

Environments monitored:

Conductivity, Metals, pH, Rainfall, Water temp.
