Texas Water Quality Board Teachers Workshop Program.
Texas Water Quality Board, Austin.
These materials are designed for teachers participating in an inservice workshop on water quality. Included in the materials are a workshop agenda, a water awareness pretest, and the various parameters and tests that are used to determine and measure water quality. The parameters are discussed from the standpoint of their potential impact to domestic waters, wildlife, and aquatic life. A description of the chemistry of the parameters and procedures is included where applicable. These materials include two readers on water quality. The first reader discusses sewerage systems, both domestic and industrial, the problems associated with waste treatment, and a listing of the more significant definitions. The second reader presents measurements and eutrophication. After the second reader, there is a section on the interpretation of water parameter data, followed by a listing of student-oriented learning activities for possible inclusion into the curriculum. A bibliography and teacher workshop evaluation form conclude this workshop guide. (BT)
