Employee and graduate student setting up equipment to measure stream flow

AFSRC research is providing producers a fundamental knowledge of the impacts of agricultural practices on soil and water quality to address personal goals and societal concerns. Measurement of water flow is necessary in order to assess agricultural impacts on the Appalachian Region’s water resources. AFSRC physical science technician, Derek Hall, prepares to measure flow on a snowy day at West Virginia’s largest karst spring where it flows underneath a highway before entering the Greenbrier River. John Tudek, West Virginia University geology graduate student, is preparing to take notes.
