|Levi and Jayling mix their pH and dissolved oxygen reagents.|
We measured water temperature, pH, turbidity, and dissolved oxygen. The water temperature was 2°C with a turbidity reading of 40 JTU. The pH was 7.5 and the dissolved oxygen was 4ppm (29% saturated).
|Rory and Christopher hold up the chart that we use to compare test results.|

Later, I entered our data on to the World Water Monitoring website: http://www.monitorwater.org/default.aspx
