Monitoring Hinkson Creek
September 10, 2009 | 12:01 a.m. CDTJason Hubbart, MU researcher, opens the hatch of one of his water quality monitoring stations on the Hinkson Creek. Hubbart is working on a large scale, long term study of the Hinkson watershed. Stations measure data including erosion, nutrients, water temperature and depth. Hubbart hopes that the collection of data will help with preservation of the creek and a better understanding of water contamination in general.
