App helps people log water quality data

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (AP) - Need help monitoring the quality of water in rivers, lakes or streams? Well, now there's an app for that.

Northern Kentucky University and the Foundation for Ohio River Education worked together to develop the mobile app, which is called WaterQuality. A statement from the school says the app can be used by scientists, teachers, students and citizens to record data as it is gathered. It is available on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

Dr. Steve Kerlin, who is director of the NKU Center for Environmental Education, as well as teachers at area high schools say they are excited about using the new app with students.

The app costs $4.99 and can be found at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/water-quality/id569193509?mt8.
