Flow Rate

The river flows mostly downhill of direction, in complex meandering path involving many directions. It is the volume of water which passes through a given volume of unit of the water.          If the river’s flow rate is low, this means that the river is not healthy and vice versa.

THE HEALTHIEST RIVER BASED ON THE RESULTS FOR FLOW RATE IS: SAVA RIVER

Chicago River

0.52 +/- 0.22 (0.03-1.12) m/s (Staff method)
0.59 +/- 0.15 (0.36-0.74) m/s (Orange method)


Sava River

Mean of dissolved oxygen for trial 1: 1.524 m/s
Mean of dissolved oxygen for trial 2: 1.07 m/s
Mean of dissolved oxygen for trial 3: 1.638 m/s
