Title: Testing for Ammonia in Cumberland County Lakes


1
Testing for Ammonia in Cumberland County Lakes
  • Mary Paradis
  • TTU Undergraduate
  • Cookeville,TN

Project Summary
  • A heightened level of ammonia is harmful to fish
    and other aquatic life.
  • The objective of this project is to investigate
    the ammonia concentrations of various lakes in
    Cumberland County.
  • These concentrations will indicate the condition
    of the water quality in Cumberland County.

3
Introduction
  • Ammonia breaks down into nitrite and nitrate in a
    process that consumes oxygen leading to decreased
    levels of dissolved oxygen.
  • Decreased levels of dissolved oxygen has negative
    effects on some aquatic life (Dyers et al 2003).

4
  • Objective
  • To determine and compare the concentrations of
    ammonia in Cumberland County lakes.
  • Hypothesis
  • There will be no significant difference in the
    concentration of ammonia from the different lakes.

5
Methods and Materials
A study will be conducted in which water samples
will be taken from various lakes in Cumberland
County. Using an ammonia test kit, the
concentration of ammonia for each sample will be
taken.
6
Methods
Test 1 Test 2 Test 3
Holiday Lake
City Lake
Lake Tansi
7
Expected Results
  • The results of this study will show the
    concentration of ammonia for the tested lakes in
    Cumberland Country.
  • These results can be used to show if there is a
    need for corrective action to be taken.

Project Timelines
  • September begin research
  • October collect data
  • November prepare results
  • December present results
