A water quality pollution control study of the James River Basin conducted by the Chesapeake Bay-Susquehanna River Basins Project in 1966-67 included an evaluation of pollution control action needed to enhance and protect water quality in the Basin. To supplement chemical and biochemical water quality data used in the evaluations, the Chesapeake Field Station conducted biological surveys of the Jackson River in the Covington and Clifton Forge areas, the James River in the Big Island and Lynchburg areas, and areas in the Tye River Watershed affected by acid wastes. For the purpose of the surveys, the community of bottom(benthic) organisms was selected as the indicator of the biological condition of the stream.
