The major purpose of the study on the Naugatuck River, Connecticut, August 1983 was to compare the relationship between measured toxicity of water samples collected from the Naugatuck River and the health of the aquatic community at the same locations where samples were collected. Because the river changed in size and character through the study area, habitat changes made the determination of toxicity effects on the stream community more difficult. Periphyton, benthos and fish species all showed a trend of reduced species richness from headwaters to mouth. The daphnid and fathead toxicity data showed a similar trend. The zooplankton taxa did not follow an upstream downstream pattern.
