Good evening Wooster community, today the AMRE Water Team visited Apple Creek with Trout Unlimited to analyze the water quality of Apple Creek. To do so, we looked at macroinvertebrates and collected data from the transducer, which measures water level that we placed in the stream a few weeks ago. Special thanks to Dr. Skip Nault for teaching us about the method and what it indicates about water quality.
Grace Hodges before she goes in to use the dip net method to collect macroinvertebrates.
- Chamari Abercrombie and Layali Banna used the kick seine method to collect macroinvertebrates. Next, Chamari used water to wash the macroinvertebrates into the silver pan while Layali held the kick seine at an angle to prevent the loss of macroinvertebrates.
- Dragonfly larvae and Damselfly larvae were collected during the dip net method.
- Overall data for the collection of macroinvertebrates and water quality – the indicators suggest excellent water quality. – The END. We hope you enjoyed our content.
