Water & Soil Contamination through Hydraulic Conductivity in the Red River Basin
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / Environmental Innovation
Region:Winnipeg Schools
City:Winnipeg, MB
School:Kelvin High School
Abstract:This study looks at average soil composition in Manitoba and its susceptibility to moving fertilizer through hydraulic conductivity. To understand the efficiency of hydraulic conductivity, each layer of soil was tested for both permeability and reactivity or its tendency to retain pollutant. It was proven that topsoil and subsoil do absorb fertilizer thus leaving the Red River and Lake Winnipeg at risk.
