Testing on Centennial Brook

A possible project could be doing tests on Centennial Brook. Doing tests on water quality of streams helps to understand if there’s an issue concerning stormwater or erosion. Burlington is a city with impervious surfaces. Impervious surfaces don’t allow for absorption of rainwater into the ground. That stormwater would then carry pollutants into water sources like streams. This brook does have a fast flow and doesn’t appear to be clear, so it would be worth investigating the water quality. It’s important that a stream ecosystem can support life.
