Water Chemistry Day Two
Water chemistry can be used as a quick snapshot of what's really happening inside that waterway. It is not the end-all be-all. Although testing the water can give a basic idea of the health of that waterway, the chemical composition of the water is ever-changing. However, knowing pH, alkalinity, dissolved oxygen, temperature, dissolved solids, turbidity, nitrates, and phosphates can help pinpoint any issues a body of water may be facing. Every facet to studying a waterway is a piece in a puzzle of trying to understand the inner-workings of that body of water.
