Our research contribution to the G.L.O.B.E program determines the effect of runoff and if it significantly alters the water quality of Cove River in West Haven, CT waters over the time period of one year. This data is comparative data to other areas with similar characteristics to West Haven. West Haven becomes one small part of collective global data that analyzes how much runoff is contaminating our water. In addition, this data allows future scientists and students to assess over time West Haven's on contribution to environmental problems.
