Abstract:This project investigates the quality of tap water of eastern North American locations using an accepted bioassay methodology employing germinating buttercrunch lettuce seeds. Results supported the hypothesis in that water from cities near highly industrialized areas showed a deficiency in root growth compared to controls indicating pollution.
