Results:Table: Results of Preliminary Water Testing
This table shows the results of the water testing at the Aumsville Wetlands Site for Temperature in degrees Celsius, Dissolved Oxygen, Nitrate in parts per million, Phosphate in parts per million, pH, and Silica in parts per million. Site 1 was located at the shore of the large pond to the Northeast of the outlet to the stream. Site 2 was in the stream about 5 meters from the outlet. Site 3 was located at the Eastern shore of the pond. Because we knew that each of the things we tested fore could vary even within the small range of areas in which e tested for, we chose to testing sites that allowed as wide a range of physical characteristics as our resources allowed us to. There can be great variation between the top of the water, which interacts with the atmosphere, and the bottom, so we sampled at each. The samples at the top were taken just below the surface of the water and the samples at the bottom were taken at a depth of four feet.
