The Water Quality Educator5870-cd

Teach your students and volunteer monitors all about Natural Water Quality Monitoring. Use the CD to plan and implement a special long-term service project, community outreach program, environmental course, and classroom and field trip pre-lab activity to test water quality in rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, estuaries, and other natural bodies of water.

The Water Quality Educator CD along with the Monitor's Handbook (code 5872) provides extensive training for the water scientist focusing on three aspects of water quality monitoring as practiced extensively by schools and communities throughout the world.

Water quality is monitored by testing for a variety of factors in three broad categories:

1. Chemical (Dissolved oxygen, nitrate, pH, phosphate, alkalinity)

2. Biological (Aquatic Macroinvertebrates as living indicators of water quality)

3. Microbiological (E. coli, total coliforms, fecal coliforms, Enterococcus)

This distinctive reference will guide you through the decisions that are made prior to testing to the analysis of the final results. Determine why you want to monitor. Select the site(s). What tests will give you the information you need to fulfill your objectives? During testing, this guide will show how to perform the test. After testing, it will interpret the results.
