STREAM ASSESSMENT PROTOCOLS





Described here are the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for completing a biosurvey. These SOPs are designed and intended for the assessment of wadeable streams; they consist of three basic elements:
  • (1) Water chemistry analysis
  • (2) Physical and habitat evaluations mostly by observations using the examples described on the survey data sheet
  • (3) Collection and assessment of the macroinvertebrate community
