Abstract:Heavy metals are necessary to keep healthy, but in large amounts can cause serious health problems. The same heavy metals that cause health problems are being consumed through something considered safe,water. For our experiments we surveyed 22 small towns in southwest Saskatchewan to determine the heavy metal content in water and determined how heavy metals affected the growth of a living organism.
