Study Design

Macroinvertebrates will be collected using standard WDNR protocols for wadeable streams (WDNR 2000). One sample will be collected at each site (Table 1) using a D-framed kick net. Specimens will be preserved in ethanol for later identification. Data will be applied to several biotic indices. One site (SR 01) is non-wadeable and the following sampling approach will used for this site. Macroinvertebrates will be collected using modified Hester-Dendy (H-D) artificial substrate samplers. Sampler construction and deployment is based upon Ohio EPA (1987)
