Freshwater Mussels

These are our theories about the disappearance of the freshwater mussels and our solutions to fix the problem

Bethany, Clay, Josh
Weather
Weather effects the flow of rivers. Weather affects the habitat of the freshwater mussels. This can play a part in the shrinkage of the population of the freshwater mussels.
Chemicals
Chemicals are having a big effect on the mussels. Fertilizer and pesticides are included. Pollution can also add to the disappearance of the freshwater mussels.

Our ideas to solve this the disappearance of the freshwater mussels is to alert the fertilizer companies and let them know that the over-dosage is polluting the river.

Solutions
Evidence
A local Boy Scout Troop found a 40-gallon barrel that was leaking unknown substance near Kenton Run.
EnviroMax was discovered to be putting on too much fertilizer and pesticides. This is also contributing to the disappearance of the freshwater mussels.

Solutions
Another solution that we have is making sure that the animals around the rivers aren't being hunted or fished. Animals play a part in keeping the rivers clean.

Solutions
If the chemicals and pesticides do affect the mussels, we could hire a new lawn care company. This could ensure that over-dosage isn't happening.
