View Research Report

Students from Madison Plains High School, London, Ohio have collected and analyzed hydrology data from local water sources. Nitrate and alkalinity levels experienced an overall increase from September 2012 to February 2013. Research has shown that there is a possible correlation between hydrology data and local climate. Also, A possible cause of increased data observed by student is local agriculture practices.
