Abstract A biological survey of the Monocacy River and certain tributaries between Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and the Maryland Route 28 Bridge was conducted in July 1966. The survey was made to determine the biological condition of the stream from its headwaters in Pennsylvania to its mouth downstream from the Maryland Route 28 Bridge near Tuscarora, Maryland. For purposes of the study, the community of bottom (benthic) organisms was selected as the indicator of the biological condition of the stream. Bottom organisms serve as the preferred food source for the higher aquatic forms and exhibit similar reactions to adverse stream conditions.
