What Data We Collected
During the stream assignment, our job was to collect information on insects, pollution, impacts based on human activity, over exploitation, habitat loss, and climate change. Also we were supposed to measure the Ph of the water, turbidity, and temperature. Some calculations we found while analyzing were the percentages of worms (11.5%), Midge (15.4%), Aquatic Sow bug (15.4%). Our main focus was to find out whether the bug was impaired or unimpaired. Our conclusion based on the data collected were worms = potentially impaired, midge = potentially impaired, aquatic sow bug = impaired. Some other data collected from the stream assignment were the observation of pollution in the area, there were a lot of empty drinks, garbage bags, and food wrappers while we were down there.
