The Effects of Stream Channelization on Bottom Dwelling Organisms: Phase 2 Report: 1975 Construction Season

Report No: 76-R31

Published in 1976

About the report:

Three construction projects affecting streams are being monitored. On two of the projects, those affecting Meadow Run and Moores Creek, the streams are being monitored for flow, suspended solids, rainfall, and benthic populations. Construction has been completed on these projects and the monitoring program is being curtailed. The third project, which affects Simpson Creek, was added to the study in May 1975 to expand the monitoring program to include chemical parameters. Therefore, only the background data on this project are available at this time.
