Title:Monitoring and Assessment of Aquatic Life in the Kaskaskia River for Evaluating IDNR Private Lands Programs: Annual Report 2016
Author(s):Metzke, Brian A.; Hinz, Leon C., Jr.
Subject(s):Conservation Reserve Program
Kaskaskia River
benthic macroinvertebrates
Abstract:Work during this period continued monitoring efforts to characterize fish assemblages, benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages, physical habitat and water quality in streams within the Kaskaskia basin. During summer of 2015, 48 locations were surveyed(a survey event includes physiochemical and biological evaluations), bringing the total locations over three survey seasons to 139 . Several of these locations have been surveyed in multiple years to evaluate interannual variation of stream characteristics or to compliment concurrent studies, and therefore the total number of monitoring events (i.e., efforts to characterize the physiochemical and biological attributes of a stream) is 179. Progress was made in assembling and evaluating relevant information from outside sources (e.g., Illinois Department of Natural Resources [IDNR], Illinois Environmental Protection Agency [IEPA]) during the reporting period.
