Colchester High School

In October 2014, students from Colchester and Essex high school partnered with UVM Watershed Alliance to conduct a water quality monitoring study of Indian Brook, a small river that flows through the towns of Essex and Colchester.   The students collected several parameters to deduce the current state of the stream and provided this information to local town officials such as the Planning Commission and Conservation Commission for each town.  Do to the fact that Indian Brook is included on the 303d list for impaired waterways, the provision of this data to these groups could be extremely useful in helping officials make management decisions for the river and watershed in years to come.
