These are some of the microorganisms I found today in the wastewater samples. In the lab, we’re provided some charts that tell about the kinds of protozoa we should be looking for. Today, the settling test yielded a small amount of solids and therefore, the clusters found under the microscope were in small amounts. There was a good diversity of microorganisms, so I was able to take some pictures of different looking protozoa. Below is some of the charts we use to determine how the sludge is in the tanks.

I am currently a senior at Lehigh University pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering. My blog this semester will be about my last undergraduate year at Lehigh: academics, social events & unexpected day to day occurrences. I'm really excited to share my thoughts, stories, and advice with anyone reading, since I know that all students go through very similar experiences. I can't wait to explore all of the opportunities that the field of Civil Engineering has to offer & I'm excited to live out my last year at Lehigh to the fullest! View all posts by lusamantha14
