Acidity in surface and ground water may be the source of industrial pollution from the presence of mineral acids, salts of strong acids or free carbon dioxide. Excessive levels cause corrosion and can be fatal to fish populations. In an effort to protect the naturally occurring habitat and identify acidity levels in a body of water, the Hach Acidity Test Kit contains all required reagents and apparatus in a rugged carrying case for analysis in the field.

Formed by a glacier, Jordan Pond is among Maine's clearest, most beautiful bodies of water. It's also a critical freshwater resource, and watchful eyes are protecting it.
EM spoke with Dr. Rachel Fowler, Friends of Acadia's aquatic scientist, about her work monitoring Jordan Pond. A postdoctoral research scientist at the University of Maine, she is a member of a partnership among the National Park Service, the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, and Friends of Acadia that began deploying the Jordan Pond buoy in 2013. Canon provided the initial support for the project.
Friends of Acadia is a nonprofit organization that supports different projects in the park.Read More
River management is inherently complex, demanding mastery of constantly dynamic conditions even when the climate is stable. As the climate changes, however, river management will become even more difficult and unpredictable—and old models and techniques are likely to fail more often.
Now, researchers from around the world are calling for attention and change to how we manage and model the rivers of the world. Dr. Jonathan Tonkin , a Rutherford Discovery Fellow at New Zealand's University of Canterbury , spoke to EM about why he is arguing that current tools for river management are no longer enough as even historical baseline river ecosystem conditions themselves are changing.
This summer a new way to learn about water recreation—and environmental stewardship—paddled into Ohio. With the help of the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG) , the US Environmental Protection Agency's (US EPA's) Urban Waters Program brought the Wilderness Inquiry Canoemobile “floating classroom” to Toledo for a few days.
TMACOG Water Quality Planner Sara Guiher spoke to EM about the programming and the experience.
“In August of 2018 we spoke with a representative from US EPA Urban Waters,” explains Guiher. “We received funding through them to bring programming to the area focused on urban water resources. The person that we talked to from US EPA suggested Canoemobile, which we had never heard of.Read More
