The Kinnickinic River Watershed has a very bad report card when it comes to conductivity.

Conductivity is a measure of the ability of water to pass an electrical current. Conductivity in streams is naturally affected by geology. Bedrock streams tend to have lower conductivity whereas streams passing through clay soils tend to have higher conductivity.

A conductivity reading of 150-500 µS/cm provides for a healthy aquatic ecosystem.

Green spaces are important for so many reasons. Our personal health is very much connected to the health of and access to our surrounding natural environment.

"One can always find calm in nature. One can always find comfort and clarity in the company of woods."
