Students give Sequatchie River a good report card
Recently, Bridgett Loyd’s Environmental Science class at Bledsoe County High School left the classroom and waded into the Sequatchie River. They tested the water quality of the river at four locations, determining the river made the grade.
Students worked in groups to perform chemical and physical tests of the water including pH, dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrates, phosphates, chlorine, silica, hardness, turbidity, water temperature, water velocity and a benthic macroinvertebrate study.
