A great way to get a snapshot of water quality in your community. The Water Monitoring Kit is an excellent tool for starting monitoring projectsand is particularly useful for school groups. It is a great way to identify problem areas within a watershed or stream and therefore it can help to guide a group to a specific problem where remediation can take place. By using each of the 8 tests and completing the kit thoroughly, an overall picture of water quality can be achieved by anyone, even someone with no experience. This kit is very straight forward and easy to use. All of the tests are accompanied with flash cards that explain exactly how to conduct each test.
