Test different Kinds of water for pH, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, phosphates, coli form bacteria, iron and hardness. [P]
Find out if the amount of E. Coli bacteria in the Carmel River changes with the location, and whether the amount of E. Coli becomes greater farther up or closer to the mouth of the river, and if the rain lessens or dilutes the colonies. [E]
