Water Quality Education Materials 

Our Water Quality office monitors a wide variety of parameters in the streams and rivers of the Qualla Boundary. What do they test for, and why does it matter?

This set of educational panels, designed to be printed on 11×17 paper, describes the information our office gets from data like temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, turbidity, and conductivity. They are written using simple language and intended to be accessible to middle grade audiences and older, with specific application to 8th grade science standards.
