We will locate at Ozama river which originates from an unpopulated hill. We will ensure that downstream the river passes through, or near a town (ie: densely populated area) Then collect 5 samples of the river water upstream, Using an empty bottle to do this, and labeling it “upstream”.
We will collect 5 sample of the river water downstream. We are going to use and empty bottle to do this and label it “downstream”.
The 10 bottles of water are then tested for their acidity using the pH paper and their turbidity is also tested using the turbidity meter. The fresh water test kit will be used to test for the water’s ammonia and nitrate content. The results of the tests are going to be recorded in the table.
