Water Quality Monitoring

Following fears of poor water quality around Anguilla, and fears of a phenomenon known as Caribbean regional eutrophication, this project set out to establish baseline data on basic water qualities parameters around the island, with the hope of establishing a permanent monitoring programme in collaboration with the Anguilla Water Lab. The results of this project indicated that eutrophic conditions were in fact present around Anguilla, and together with other visual observation and results from other survey work, gave rise to the theory of regional Caribbean eutrophication.
