The data presented in this report were collected to support evaluation of the BUIs for degradation of benthos and degradation of plankton populations. Degradation of benthos is one of the most widespread BUIs in the United States, and these aquatic communities in many cases cannot be brought back to a predisturbance state. Degradation of benthos is most often related to sediment contamination, but water chemistry, substrate type, inadequate food supply, and river flows may also be important.
