The ‘Our water – our future’ project at Nunnery Wood, Worcester

A group of pupils from Nunnery Wood High School in Worcester carried out some of the OPAL Water survey activities as part of the ‘Our water – our future’ project that they are involved in. The project is being run by Worcestershire county council and the environment agency to monitor the water quality of local brooks and streams. A group of 12 students walked down to Bow Brook and took a sample of water, measured the pH, water flow and took a sample of invertebrates living in the stream. The main invertebrates found in the water were water shrimps. Although sampling time was limited all students got involved with the water monitoring activities and collected information that can be built on in the future.
