Water Sample Disposal

#1 Post by jgeez » Mon Nov 14, 2022 12:20 am

What is the correct way to dispose of pond water samples after I finish with them. I usually keep them a few days, view them, and then throw the water out. Should I just dispose of it in the sink. Or, should I discard it outside. I am not talking about samples heavy with bacteria -- just typical pond samples with Rotifers and the other usual suspects. Does it matter?

I throw mine in my house plant's container.
If I had a lot and no house plants I'd throw it on the ground outside.
