A group of high schoolers in the Green Bay, Wisc. area are learning about careers in environmental science thanks to the Lower Fox River Watershed Monitoring Program . The program, supported by the University of Wisconsin, has involved more than 700 students since its 2003 launch.
“We have almost ten years of data,” said Annette Pelegrin, program coordinator. “It began in 2003 with five watersheds. We’ve trained teachers and schools that are interested and showed them how to measure different parameters.”
Those include flow, temperature, transparency and turbidity of the program’s streams. YSI 55 meters are used to measure dissolved oxygen and levels of phosphorus, ammonia and nitrogen are checked with a Hach colorimeter.Read More
Springfield, Ohio, a college town of 60,000 in southwestern Ohio, sits on the confluence of the Mad River and Buck Creek. Springfield’s streams are as much a part of the city as is Wittenberg University. The streams and the university’s brick infrastructure stand as a constant backdrop to the action of the community but do not often draw attention themselves.
Over the next year, however, Springfield will be paying close attention to its waterways in an effort to eliminate illegal discharges.
“The city is required to determine the location of every pipe that enters Springfield’s streams,” said Sky Schelle, the stormwater coordinator for the city of Springfield. “If a pipe is flowing, we must determine the source of the flow.Read More
For most humans, mayflies seem like a nuisance, hovering over the waterways as we try to enjoy them. However, for anyone hoping to monitor the health of watersheds, mayflies are important aquatic species—and now, a digital version of the mayfly is helping some scientists keep an eye on the water. Research scientist Dr. Scott Ensign , who serves as Assistant Director of the Stroud Water Research Center , spoke to EM about how the digital mayfly technology developed.
“ Shannon Hicks is the engineer who started developing the Mayfly six or seven years ago,” explains Dr. Ensign.Read More
