This manual contains procedures for collecting samples and measurement data from selected biotic and abiotic components of streams in the eastern United States for the Wadeable Streams Assessment. These procedures were initially developed and used between 1993 and 2003 in research studies of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys (EPA) Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP), and published in Lazorchak et al. (1998) and modified by Peck et al. (2003) for use on an extensive pilot study in the western United States (EPA Regions 8, 9, and 10). The purposes of this manual are to: (1) Document the procedures used in the collection of field data and various types of samples for the Wadeable Streams Assessment (WSA) and (2) provide these procedures for use by other groups implementing stream monitoring programs similar to WSA and these procedures.
