Analyzing water quality isn't simply about measuring contaminants anymore. Dr. Underwood will discuss the more holistic approach of bioassessment and how diatoms and insects are used as tools to determine biological health of the fresh water systems that feed our reservoirs and aquifers. If you want to know how healthy a water system is, just ask the bugs!
