Change X Water monitoring - February 24

18 Feb 2024

First testing of water quality in Grove Farm

We have had our training from Freshwater watch, got the kit & did our first trial run of testing today led by our project manager Olena.

We tested 6 sites across Grove Farm. It had rained heavily the day before & so there was plenty of water to test. The tests were a little fiddly to begin with but we soon got the hang of it. See some pics below. If you would like to join us, please use the following link.

We can see a mix of results. Turbidity - whether the water is clear or not - is an issue in two of our testing spots (water coming into the ephemeral pond) and water quality seems to be changing on Coston’s brook as we go through the site. But these are only a few data points. We look forward to getting more data to see what patterns & trends we uncover.

We look forward to running our first group training session on Saturday March 23rd at 2pm.
