UW Water Resources Institute’s New Videos

Within the past month, the UW Water Resources Institute has added two new videos to their collection. Produced by John Karl, these short YouTube videos are informative and to the point, a very effective way to spread some news from the field.

The first video(above), entitled “Testing Well Water for Microorganisms,” explains a simple process of water testing to check for contaminants. The goal of the project is a methodology to find the source of the contamination.

In the second video, “A New Measure of Groundwater Flow,” researchers experiment with pumping hot water into a well to determine the flow of the groundwater. The hot water will disperse more quickly if the water flow is quicker. Watch this video and others on University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute’s YouTube channel.
