Detailed Description

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.
