Summary

In 2013, the first of several Regional Stream Quality Assessments (RSQA) was done in the Midwest United States. The Midwest Stream Quality Assessment (MSQA) was a collaborative study by the U.S. Geological Survey National Water Quality Assessment and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency National Rivers and Streams Assessment. One of the objectives of the RSQA, and thus the MSQA, is to characterize relations between stream ecology and water-quality stressors to determine the relative effects of these stressors on aquatic biota in streams. Data required to meet this objective included fish species and abundance data and physical and chemical water-quality characteristics of the ecological reaches of the sites that were sampled. This [...]

Purpose

This dataset was created to support the MSQA objectives (effects of stressors; see Abstract) and was developed using the stream ecology and physical and chemical water-quality data at sampled sites and ecological reaches. The ecological and water-quality characteristics in this dataset assist with the statistical analyses and interpretation of stream water-quality and biotic data collected for the MSQA study.
