Project website:

The Pueblo of Santa Ana’s Department of Natural Resources needed improvements to their water sampling methods due to a unique local environment. The goal of this project was to create a water sampling plan comprised of sampling techniques and a water collection device for use during low flow conditions in the Pueblo’s rivers. We achieved our goal through research, interviews, and field tests. We created a guide for proper sampling protocols and designed a water optimization device for sampling water.
