Abstract:In 2011, Regina's Wascana Creek was amongst the most polluted in the world. Water samples were collected and analyzed for organic pollutants, showing stabilization after 3 days. The induction of lakewater into algae cultures indicated a significant increase in algal population. Bacteriological water analysis was then performed using prototype BART biodetectors for active cell and algae populations along with ATP levels to investigate growth causation.
