"Our project tested how far an electric current could travel through water. We chose to do this project because we were curious how far the current from a lightning bolt could travel in water. We found that is should take 2.88 x 10^6 L to completely neutralize a 9 volt battery. This project could help save lives by calculating the distance that the electricity from a fallen powerline could travel in water. It also taught us how important it is to be safe with electricity. "

How pure was the water you used and in the river? There are probably lots of minerals in all of the water that could affect your results. Otherwise, nice project.

I like your inspiration for this project. The result is quite interesting. I encourage you to continue the project with placing the electrodes at different distances (making a map) in some of the cases.Congratulation and wishing further interesting projects.
