Presentation Abstract

Conductivity is the ability of water to conduct electricity. It is a measurement of the total amount of dissolved solids. Monitoring water conductivity can lead to a better understanding of pollutants in the environment. During the monitoring samples were taken between Feb 20, 2019 to Feb 17, 2021. These samples were taken from the Head and Mouth of Swash and Cabana road at Briarcliffe Acres in South Carolina. The measurements conducted are conductivity measurements in laboratory with Hach HQ40d reference method: SM 2510 A-2011 and 2510 B-2011. Over 45 samples have a median around 50,075 micro siemens and outliers all the way down to 5,510 at one point with the highest outlier being 54,500.
