I think it be real cool to sample the water at say three points on the River and the Harbor, say on a weekly bases for microbes. Then compare the numbers and types to when Milwaukee dumps a few million Gallons of raw sewage into the Lake like The Green Mayor of Milwaukee Tom Barret likes to do.

Will the numbers and types of bugs go up here from that? How long does the dumping take to effect the water here?

To make it more interesting for the kids I have them build a R/C craft they could

drive on the River and Lake to do the sampling, I thing it be a cool fun way to get kids interested in how sewage dumping effects the whole Watershed.

IMHO the more we can do to keep youth connected to the Root River the better
