Title: Stressed stream analysis and biomonitoring of the Clear Run watershed, Licking County, Ohio.
Author: Krulia, Katherine; Korfmacher, Karl
Abstract: This is a research project focusing on determining the water quality potentially impacted by different land uses within the Clear Run Watershed. It is through the diversity of the macroinvertebrates that one may determine the health of the watershed, the quality of the water, and possible sources of pollution from land use within the watershed based on a comparison of sites. Samples of benthic macroinvertebrates were collected at different riffle/run areas along the streams through a process called kick sampling and then brought back to the lab for identification and used in determining the Hilsenhoff Biotic Index, Mitchell and Stapp scores, and EPT scores. Based on these procedures and index models, the overall quality of the Clear Run Watershed was deemed very good to excellent with slight impairment at the ordinal level.
