The Student Watershed Watch (SWW) helps our regionís young people to appreciate our streams, so they may grow to be wise stewards. Each year the SWW brings hundreds of students together from urban and rural school districts in the Maumee Area of Concern to learn about our local environment. Highlights of this two-part program includes water quality testing performed by Junior and Senior High School classes at local stream sites. Students test for temperature, turbity, dissolved oxygen, pH, and many other parameters using standardized test kits to determine the health of the water. Benthic samples are collected from the stream bottoms for analyzing macroinvertebrate communities. The program culminates at a Student Summit where student representatives from participating schools release and compare their results. Students also have an opporunity to network with their peers and local professionals during the poster and workshop sessions of the Summit. Information from previous years including participating schools, sampling sites, and results can be downloaded by clicking on this link.
