This week is when Lauren and I will be measuring the different levels of things in the water such as ph, salinity, and the water quality. The supply's should arrive tomorrow, so we will have the tools to do the project. We are planning on using oil of oregano, membrane filters and charcoal. We are also going to use a common method where you use the heat of the sun to evaporate the water leaving salt and other particles behind. Thats where the remaining cleaner water is filtered through the oil, membrane filter paper and charcoal. Then, we will test the clean water and compare it to it's original results to see improvement in the water quality. We're going to try a few different combinations to see which one works the best and if there is anything else that can be improved on.
