As part of a service learning approach to increasing community engagement, students performed analytical chemical tests of wetlands to determine pH, chloride, total dissolved solids, and phosphorus levels. Since sucralose has been determined to be an indicator of anthropogenic waste in natural waters, students also test for this artificial sweetener. A Vernier Conductivity Probe was used to determine total dissolved solids.
