  1. Southgate Anderson Stream Team Aquatic Invertebrate Testing 2005-06 School Year By: Dan Spagnol, Jesse Rhodes & the Stream Team

  2. What’s All This About? • Wayne County Department of Environment (WCDOE) enlisted the help of the Stream Team to undertake a benthic monitoring program beginning in 2004, engaging a large number of volunteers in annual aquatic invertebrate sampling of the Southern Wayne County Watersheds

  3. Why? • Different species of aquatic • invertebratesare indicators of water quality: • Examples • Poor: Sludgeworms, Leeches • Fair: Craneflies, Dragonflies • Good: Stoneflies, Caddisflies

  4. Aquatic Invertebrates 2005 Water Scorpion

  5. Dragonfly Nymph

  6. Water Strider

  7. 1st Annual Southern Wayne County Watershed Bug Hunt Results (Fall 2004)

  8. 2nd Annual Southern Wayne County Watershed Bug Hunt Results (Fall 2005)

  9. 2nd Annual Wayne County Watersheds Spring Bug Hunt Results (Spring 2005)

  10. Key Findings: • Frank & Poet Creek water quality in • the Fall was Poor to Fair at CD-1 and • CD-2, respectively (for both 2004 & 2005). • Water Quality Rating increased slightly • at CD-1 (from 12.3 to 15.3); but, • decreased at CD-2 (from 30.7 to 23.4) • during Fall sampling in 2004 and 2005.

  11. Key Findings: • The poorest water quality ratings were • Recorded in the Spring of 2005 (CD-1 = 11.4; • CD-2 = 16.4) • Caddisflies were abundant during Fall, • 2004 sampling; but, were entirely absent • During Fall, 2005 sampling at site CD-2!!
