During late July and early August of 1992, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conducted an intensive survey of the Indian Creek basin, seventh order tributary to the Illinois River. It drains approximately 160 square miles in Morgan County and 126 square miles in Cass County. Four stations were sampled on the Indian Creek mainstem and one on Little Indian Creek. The survey focused on macroinvertebrate communities, fish populations, instream habitat as well as sediment and water chemistry as tools to document the biological and chemical status of Indian Creek.
