Students Get Their Feet wet in the Maumee Watershed

The 20th annual Student Watershed Watch concludes with a Student Summit on Friday, November 20 at the University of Toledo. Middle school and high school students from schools throughout the Maumee River watershed performed water quality testing in October. At November’s summit, the classes will present desktop displays and group presentations of their findings. After two decades of the annual project, some schools have impressive historical documents that track changes in water temperature, dissolved oxygen, amounts of phosphorus and nitrates (fertilizers), and other markers of water quality over 20 years. Sponsors for the Student Watershed Watch are City of Toledo, First Solar, BP, and Perstorp. Also providing support is Earth Force.
