Local Water Testing

Paul Romani

Students of Pear Tree’s salmon course decided to test water with potential pollutants they found around our buildings

In the summer, some students from Pear Tree’s Go Green Eco Team course did drain marking to create awareness about harmful items contaminating our salmon streams.
Yesterday, we collected garbage around the drain and tested the water’s toxicity and pH levels compared to our tank.
The results were not good, but taught students how important it is to dispose of waste carefully.
Some water samples and garbage we collected to test included: rusty nails, water contaminated with car oil, and soapy water from someone washing their car.
