We measured dissolved oxygen (the amount of oxygen in the water, water temperature, turbidity (how clear the water is), pH (how acidic the water is), conductivity, nitrate, and phosphate. According to our data, much more can be done to improve the pond like adding a fountain to help the algae and other things circulate.
