Monitoring Water Quality on the Anacostia River
Join Ashley and Nick at Bladensburg Waterfront Park along the Anacostia River. The gage in this park is “supercharged” to monitor the “BIG 5” water-quality parameters: dissolved-oxygen concentration, pH, specific conductance, water temperature, and turbidity.
What’s more, it will soon be equipped with a semi-autonomous bacteria sampler so that scientists and policymakers can monitor the river’s bacteria concentration.
