Pond Watch performs monthly testing (during good weather months) of the East Fallowfield Community Park pond to assess chemical and physical characteristics of the pond and how they may change over time. The monitoring includes basic chemistry tests to determine the pH, conductivity, temperature, nitrates, dissolved oxygen and phosphate levels in the water. This data can be used to determine the overall health of the pond and whether it can continue to support a healthy fish, reptile and waterfowl habitat.
Below is the schedule for Pond Watch 2017:
As always, we meet at East Fallowfield Park at 8:00 am and this takes about an hour to complete. Hope to see some new faces this year!
