Water Quality Sampling on the Yellow Breeches. Members of the Capital Area Senior Environment Corps do water quality sampling on the Yellow Breeches in Cumberland County.
Art Sconing, Velda Kauffman, Carl Crone and Harvey Baney explain how they do dissolved oxygen, phosphates, pH, temperature and other water quality testing at this location on the Yellow Breeches.
At a separate location, the same team will show how they do macroinvertebrete counts to help determine the stream’s overall ability to support aquatic life.
