FishKill Project By: Christian Pearson Lee, Candie Amezquita, Kailee Candie, Raymond Hayes
Quote by NTJ As you can see from the graphs, the pH level of the water dropped drastically to a level of 4.3 which is roughly the pH level of Root Beer. So to imagine fish swimming through Root Beer is almost unthinkable but it became a near reality in levels of acidity during the week of the fish kill.
We think the people responsible are... Mining Company • the metals in the water contribute to the low pH levels • they used a chemical that went into the water and stunned the fish, and killed them. Sanitation Workers Why? • Low pH level • if the pH level was at its normal level did their job , there would be no fishkill.
