1 Jun (Wed): My forest is DYING and the role of water quality

How does water quality affect our wild places? Having problems with your pond? Concerned about the health of your favourite wetland area? But clueless about the basics of water quality? Or do you want to do a project in water but have no idea where to start?

Find out at a special Water Quality course conducted by Kwok Chen Ko, whom I consider to be my Water Quality Guru. This course is open to the public!

Water Quality Monitoring involves checking the health of waterways on a regular basis. Whether in natural streams or urban canals, most of the water ends up in our reservoirs which provide our drinking water. Hence, Water Quality Monitoring plays a vital role in safeguarding our water supplies.

In recent years, many projects on water quality, water treatment, wastewater treatment have emerged from both the public and private sectors. Some projects were for commercial purposes, some became community projects for developing countries while others aim to improve our living environment.

Formerly only offered to MOE teachers and staff, Kwok Chen Ko's Water Quality Monitoring course is now open to members of the public too!
