Presentation Abstract

Salinity is the measure of the salt dissolved in a body of water. Salinity is conveyed in parts per thousand (ppt) or percentage ("°). Salinity of a body of water proves to be vital because salts can be toxic to the environment in terms of being in water. Water that is too polluted with salt may not be drinkable and usable in many ways for the people in the area in question. In this research a total of 45 samples of environment quality lab salinity were taken from February 20, 2019 to February 17, 2021 in the mouth of swah in Briarcliffe Acres, South Carolina. Salinity was measured using Hach CDC401 Conductivity Probe. The mean of data was 26.2"° and ranged from 2.9"°-39.7"°, which is out of the normal range.
