Ever try to figure out the filtration properties of an aquifer on agricultural land? Or maybe you're more interested in just playing around in mud. Field of Streams is a double sloped stream table providing experimentation with aquifers, land use and erosion. It's also just plain, mucky fun.
Field of Streams is a sixteen foot long double sloped stream table , designed to retain underground water (or an aquifer) while participants figure out appropriate rural land use, building roads, farms, pasture lands and wells . Dies allow the testing for pollutants on ground water and streams.
