Pollution and depth of waterFeatured science projectScience project video

Observation

It is observed that the levels of acidity, ammonia content and nitrate found in the water samples did not change significantly regardless of the depth at which these samples were obtained. However, the turbidity of the water increased as the depth of water increased.
 

Water depth Tests done on water samples
  Acidity (pH) Turbidity (NTU) Ammonia (ppm) Nitrate (ppm)
1 meter 6.9 2.1 1.2 1.4
2 meters 6.8 2.4 1.3 1.5
3 meters 6.8 2.9 1.2 1.4
4 meters 6.8 3.3 1.2 1.4
