Three Week Plans

Team Vision for Detailed Design Phase


Update any and all documents and tools needing revision following this review. Increase level of detail where applicable in test plans and the MSD II schedule. Reiterate peer review and conduct further analysis on how both the team and the individuals comprising it can continue to improve.

Dive into greater detail the use and application of various plant species to provide greater aeration for the fish. Continue to expand upon sensor research, specifically cost-worth analysis.

Expand nitrate cycling tests to include findings from aquatic plant aeration in our testing.

Summary: Ensure all plans, documents, resources, and research are prepped and ready to begin testing as soon as possible in MSD II

Project Location: The location for system testing has been confirmed in the KGCOE building basement.
