CYI Studying the Brandywine

Hello, my name is Tony Norman. I am a part of the Coatesville Youth Initiative (CYI). This is my first year in the program, and so far I’ve learned so many new things; from different recipes, to different knowledge of gardening, and crop production. On Tuesdays we go canoeing down the Brandywine creek to conduct tests on the water to record its life sustainability. We test for Ph levels, turbidity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, and we take water samples, and with a process to be later explained, we find out how many ecoli organisms are active in the creek.

Our goal is to record the rivers sustainability for fish and plant life, and provide this information to treatment centers of the Brandywine creek, and also compare our results to theirs. This is important because the Brandywine Creek provides water to everyone alongside it, and comes to a stop in Delaware. So the reliability of the Brandywine must be closely monitored to make sure of its safety.

So far I’ve learned so many new things about Chester County; its ecosystem, the produce system, different skills used to grow healthy plants, what’s good & bad for them, eating tips, how to grow and prepare produce for eating, tons of information about the Brandywine Creek, MoGreena, etc. Thanks to Waste Oil Recyclers.
