dc.description.abstractThe Milwaukee Deep Tunnel Project was implemented in 1994 to take in overflow from the Metro-Milwaukee sewer system after the current sewer system was deemed incapable of holding water brought in by heavy rainfall events. The intention of the Deep Tunnel was to hold this overflow until it could be properly treated and then released back into the Milwaukee watershed. Critics of the Deep Tunnel Project claim that this project has been ineffective as untreated sewage is still being released into Milwaukee’s major rivers and outer harbor. Data dating back to 1979 has been collected to confirm or deny the veracity of these criticisms. Looking specifically at dissolved oxygen and fecal coliform this project intends to test the change in water quality in Milwaukee before and after the implementation of the Deep Tunnel Project. A T-test and Spearman Correlation were employed to test water quality using data from three sites in the major rivers and three in the outer harbor.en_US
