Field of Streams
Ever try to figure out the filtration properties of an aquifer on agricultural land? Or maybe you're more interested in just playing around in mud. Field of Streams is a double sloped stream table providing experimentation with aquifers, land use and erosion. It's also just plain, mucky fun.
Field of Streams is a sixteen foot long double sloped stream table , designed to retain underground water (or an aquifer) while participants figure out appropriate rural land use, building roads, farms, pasture lands and wells . Dies allow the testing for pollutants on ground water and streams.
