Abstract
This study was conducted to evaluate the water quality of the stream on the Westside Nature Preserve (WNP) of Western Connecticut State University. Stream water quality at the WNP, since the construction of a new magnet school and associated access road, has been previously studied using mouse cell cultures. This study is a continuation of those investigations, using water from two separate locations within the WNP to determine any possible effects the water may have on mouse cell morphology. Results indicate that morphological abnormalities occurred in higher proportions in the experimental samples as compared with controls.
