Water Quality in the Lake Houston Watershed

  • Fred McGrew, AP Environmental Science, Kingwood High School

    DRIVING QUESTION: How can we, as environmental stewards and scientists, profile, evaluate and compare water quality data at various sites within the Lake Houston Watershed?

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Students will collect and test water from various sites in the Lake Houston Watershed on multiple dimensions such as Dissolved Oxygen (DO), nitrates, nitrites, pH, turbidity, etc.  Opportunities are also available for student decided/ led projects that run the gamut from art back to science.
