Science+Art+Design Workshop: Water Quality Testing

Thursday, March 28, 2019 at 3:50 pm to 5:00 pm more dates through April 18, 2019

University Center, 618 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY

Join us as we test our local waterways for microbial biodiversity, and discuss how evolution is happening as a consequence of our antiquated combined sewage overflow system, and the ways in which designers can meet water quality challenges.

Clean water is important for drinking, recreation, and fishing, and urban environments must manage water. With increased climatic weather events, we are seeing local waterways contaminated by toxic runoff, hormones, and sewage. In the US,  the EPA provides a summary of water quality assessment of each body water type and often use the coliform bioindicator test to indirectly measure the level of sewage contamination in rivers, lakes, and oceans. Join us as we test our local waterways for microbial biodiversity, and discuss how evolution is happening as a consequence of our antiquated combined sewage overflow system, and the ways in which designers can meet water quality challenges.
