Group 8 Abstract

We plan to compare water samples from Sunset Lake and the Hudson River at Poughkeepsie. We will compare spectroscopy readings and use a home aquarium water testing kit to determine the two sources’ potability. Should Vassar legend hold true, we expect Sunset Lake to contain more heavy metals due to its proximity to the Mudd chemistry building. We do not expect either water source to be potable.
