What’s in the water? Animas High School students take a closer look

Chemistry class puts river, wastewater under microscope
Sadie Vance, a junior at Animas High School, explains the characteristics of the fish her mother, Beth Vance, caught and how it is affected by metal contaminants. Sadie and 64 other AHS students presented their projects on the study of water quality as part of their chemistry class.
Luke Mick, an Animas High School junior, demonstrates characteristics of caddisfly larvae. He studied caddisfly populations as part of a project about water quality in the Animas River with his partner, Marilyn Short, also an AHS junior. More than 60 AHS chemistry students presented their projects Thursday at the Powerhouse Science Center.
Marilyn Short, an Animas High School junior, says she was surprised by how much life is in the Animas River. She conducted a study of how the Gold King Mine spill affected caddisfly populations with her partner, Luke Mick, also an Animas High junior. Sixty-five AHS chemistry students presented projects Thursday at the Powerhouse Science Center.
