STEAM Stream Sampling
The Owasco River is a living laboratory running through the City, providing hands on water quality education opportunities for people of all ages. The Auburn Enlarged School District is participating in this program, collecting macroinvertebrates and water chemistry information from a series of stations along the River to document water quality conditions. As part of the Auburn Sparks project, two additional field collection stations were added and samples were collected by Bergmann Associates within the project study area. This will add to the data available to students and the Finger Lakes Institute, providing a deeper understanding of water quality in the River and enhancing the educational experience for the Auburn Enlarged School District.
