Page history last edited by ErinKeating 14 years, 4 months ago

Say it is the year 2100 and you are on the new Water Quality team for MdL.  Despite all 95 years of previous work, MdL's water supply is still not safe and sustainable.   You want to create a new page for your project at the beginning of your winter quarter ENG 692 class.  Here is how you can do it.


  • To edit the Wiki, create an account

  • go to the wiki (ecos4mdl.pbwiki.com

  • click, create an account on the right of the page

  • name the page [e.g. Water Quality (2100) ]

  • put it in the Projects folder

  • choose the MdL Project Template

  • Create page!

  • Link the page to your year's Trip Overview (if not already done)

  • if your year doesn't yet have a Trip Overview page, make one:

    • paste this in as a link in your wiki page

    • refer to this report for any data or extensive specifics
