Ridley College Grade 12 Environmental Management Classes Test Pond Water

The Gr. 12 Environmental Management classes travelled to the Burgoyne Outdoor Education Centre yesterday to test pond water. The purpose was to analyze the abiotic components of the two ponds at the Burgoyne Centre under aerated and non-aerated conditions. Specifically, students conducted water chemistry indicator tests i.e. aesthetic, physical and chemical; collected benthic macroinvertabrates, and completed a soil textural analysis.
