Project SEARCH Monitors the Oyster River’s long- term water quality
Yale University continues with a commitment to West Haven High School’s Honors Biology program. Biology and Environmental Science students from West Haven High School participate in Project SEARCH. About 40 to 50 of these West Haven High students assist in tracking the quality and health of the Oyster River which flows through Yale University’s West Campus. Project SEARCH is a water quality monitoring and aquatic studies program where students conduct bi-yearly field studies to collect water samples and determine pollution status.
