Summary

Data provided from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) including simulated values of 72 hydrologic metrics, or indicators of hydrologic alteration (IHA), 37 fish metrics, and 64 benthic invertebrate metrics were reviewed to assess significant flow-ecology relations that may be developed. Hydrologic alteration was represented by simulation of streamflow record for a pre-water-withdrawal condition (baseline) without dams or developed land, compared to the simulated recent-flow condition (2008) including withdrawals, dams and altered landscape to calculate a percent-alteration of flow. Biological samples used represent a median condition of the biological community from 1972 to 2010. This study reviewed more than 7,272 [...]

Purpose

The purpose of these data are to report the regression summaries for those relations which were recommended for further study, and to briefly explain why those which were omitted did not meet study criteria.
