Habitat/Physico-chemical Assessment of Streams Along the Pennsylvania Lake Erie Shoreline

As part of a comprehensive watershed study funded by the Growing   Greener program (PA DEP), the habitat and physicochemical assessment   of the Pennsylvania streams which flow into Lake Erie included a   description of land use patterns and measurements of instream   parameters such as width, depth, flow, and bed substrate, using the   EPA's Rapid Bioassessment Protocol.  Water quality parameters   evaluated included in situ measurements of temperature,   conductivity, dissolved oxygen, and turbidity.  In addition, water   samples were collected for suspended solids determination and   chemical analysis for selected contaminants of concern.
