A major goal of the MBSS is to assess the impacts of acidic deposition on Marylands headwater streams and their biological resources. The MBSS is also designed to characterize and assess biological, physical habitat, and water quality conditions of streams throughout the entire state, based on a three-year implementation schedule (1995-1997). This report presents statewide results from the 1995-1997 MBSS sampling years. This report includes a characterization of stream conditions, assessments based on ecological indicators, and analyses of the associations between human impacts and stream ecological conditions.
