The BA environmental science class went to The Sands at Port Royal to assess the water quality of the local estuary. They took water samples to test for Coliform Bacteria, pH, temperature, nitrate and phosphate levels, turbidity, dissolved oxygen and biochemical oxygen demand. Part of the lab was to assess the potential impact that each land use has on the local estuary. ABOVE: Carlyle O’Herron and Allison Alvarez observe a sample.
