  1. Describe one thing that humans do that changes water quality - either making it worse or better. How would it affect each of the 3 tests we conducted during class?
  2. Research another water quality test. What does that test measure? How do you perform that test? What are the natural readings and what are unnatural readings? Describe 2 natural reasons why readings would vary. Describe 2 human impacts that could affect the test.

Going Further

  1. Conduct water quality analysis on the reservoir part of the terraqua column. See Terraqua Column lesson.
  2. Conduct water quality analysis at the creek restoration site before and after restoration.See Habitat Survey lesson
  3. Conduct an independent investigation using terraqua columns that monitors water quality. See Terraqua Column Experiment lesson.
