During April and May of 2018, the 8th graders of BHCS tested the water quality of three different sites on the Bagaduce Watershed in downeast Maine. On April 30 the class tested the water of Snow Natural Area. On May 1 they visited Ferry Landing and on May 9 they water tested at Sherm Perkins Memorial Park. At each of these sites they conducted 8 different water tests: temperature; dissolved oxygen; coliform bacteria; biochemical oxygen demand; pH; turbidity; phosphate; and nitrate. All of the 8th graders split up into 7 groups and each group conducted different water tests to determine the quality of the water in the Bagaduce Watershed.
