Carbon: A Solution for Water Pollution, Part Two
Region:Cariboo Mainline
City:Merritt, BC
School:Coquihalla Middle School
Abstract:This project investigates the ability of Carbon to filter out pollutants in a running river system in order that the water quality maintains a healthy level. The testing of dissolved oxygen, conductivity, pH, total dissolved solids and water temperature was conducted on both Carbon filtered and non Carbon filtered samples. The results showed that Carbon did not clean the pollutants from each river system.
