LAKE ST. CLAIR METRO PARK - On Oct. 9-10, AP Environmental Science Teacher Chris Skowronski took students to Lake St. Clair Metro Park to measure water quality. Students conducted physical observations of the Lake St. Clair and also measured the lake's biological oxygen demand, dissolved oxygen, fecal coliform levels, nitrate, phosphate, pH, and turbidity values. Results of the tests were sent to Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality. Citizen monitoring is essential, as all students in the Grosse Pointe Public School System enjoy and rely on the Great Lakes for fresh water everyday. By being watchdogs, we can ensure that Lake St. Clair's water quality says strong into the future.
