William water s point of view

William Water’s Point of View!

Created by: Ilda, Caylee, Makayla, Dmitry. 


If there is so much water on earth why bother conserving it

If there is so much water on earth, why bother conserving it?

  • 97% of the world’s water is salt water.

  • 3% is freshwater.

  • It is hard to turn salt water into fresh water. (quickly and easily.)

  • If we use up all the fresh water, we will only have salt water to survive on.

  • Most fresh water is ice, groundwater, and deep groundwater. (others are less than 1%)


What water quality issues is your individual william waters concerned about

What water quality issues is your individual (William Waters) concerned about?

  • PH – to measure the acidity.

  • DO (Dissolved Oxygen) – to see if there will be any oxygen in the river.

  • Temp. – the machines may dump hot water into the river, killing the trout.

  • William is also concerned about the development of the trout, causing run off, and erosion.

  • William knows the trout are very sensitive to changes in temperature, dissolved oxygen, and acidity.

  • He is also concerned about what is getting into the river (from FabCo) because of the trout.


What are the sources of pollution you think fabco would cause

What are the sources of pollution you think FabCo would cause?

  • FabCo would cause runoff from the chemicals that the machines use, and erosion from the farmlands they are destroying.

  • William believes there will be a lot of dissolved oxygen, from the hot water the machines dump into the river.

  • The hotter the water; the less oxygen there is.

  • If there is a lot of run off, the trout will not be able to survive in the river.


What additional problems would william waters be concerned about

What additional problems would William Waters be concerned about?

  • William will be concerned about how much land FabCo takes up. (which could ruin farmlands, and cancel the trout festival.)

  • The land that is used for farming now, would have to be made into the sites of new homes.

  • William would be concerned about how the trout will react to the erosion caused by the factory, along with runoff.

  • The city, Wamego, would have to spend more money for new storm drains, businesses, parking lots, and streets.

  • All of the erosion would cause blockage in the river, making the organisms eventually die out.


William water s point of view

What water quality tests would William recommend if the changes took place? What would be the predicted outcome of those tests?

  • William would recommend a PH test, Dissolved Oxygen test, and temperature test.

  • PH – usually a PH test is done when there is a industry is nearby, and to measure the amount of acidity in the river!

  • DO – to see if the water is affected by the hot water poured into the river from the machines.

  • Temp. – to see if the trout and other organisms will be able to survive. (When there is a increase or decrease in temperature, organisms react drastically.)

  • The predicted outcome would show the town of Wamego what FabCo is doing to the river, and fishermen’s, farmer’s, etc. lives.


Summary

Summary!

  • William thinks that FabCo shouldn’t move into the town of Wamego. Here are some reasons;

  • He believes that his trout fishing life will die out because the river will be polluted by the soil that has run off, causing turbidity into the river, and issues for organisms in the river.

  • Because of the imports and exports, ships will travel down to Wamego; most likely dropping off chemicals by leaking fuel/gas in the river.

  • William is wondering about what effect the company FabCo would have on the quality of the river, and the plants inside the water.
