Summary

Aquatic ecological surveys are valuable to understanding the interaction between the biotic and abiotic components in rivers and streams. However, large-scale assessments of the water chemistry, geomorphology, and ecological community are usually not feasible due to limited resources. Beginning in 2013, the Regional Stream Quality Assessment Project of the US Geological Survey’s National Water Quality Program, began sampling 89-120 streams in each of 5 regions across the conterminous United States—the Midwest (2013), Southeast (2014), Pacific Northwest (2015), Northeast (2016), and California (2017). Sampling included water and streambed sediment chemistry, stage and temperature (Journey and others, 2015). The abiotic data is available [...]

Purpose

The data were collected to fulfill the ecological data collection for the Regional Stream Quality Assessment Project design. These data are appropriate for comparison to other data collected for the Southeast Stream Quality Assessment. These data may also be used to compare with samples collected using the same collection and identification methods for other locations across the country.
