Alverthorpe Pond monitoring


The algae bloom at Alverthorpe Pond in Abington made an interesting study for nutrients.  We placed loggers upstream and downstream of the pond for a month.  There was a drop in oxygen and nitrate downstream of the pond.  The results were presented to other researchers on the William Penn Foundation grant at the annual Suburban Cluster field trip on August 6.
