This project intends to discover how water clarity affects the diversity of Longwood University's native freshwater microbiomes. The group hypothesized that if the lake water clarity is low, then microbiomes within the lake will be less abundant. The results of this experiment proved that the lake waters were far clearer than previous measurements of clarity had shown, as bacterial colonies were highly abundant.
