In 1994, the U.S. EPA initiated the Regional Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (R-EMAP) in EPA Region VII. This study consisted of two years of stream surveys to be repeated every five years. The purpose of this study was to determine the current health and quality of the fisheries in Region VII and establish baseline data to be used in evaluating trends throughout the region. Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) conducted the field work and presented the data from the 1994 and 1995 survey sites to the EPA. The specific objectives of the 2000/2001 REMAP project were a) to collect data to measure the status of biological integrity and riparian habitat quality of the states stream resources, b) to measure any changes in the biological integrity and habitat quality by comparing current data to data collected in Kansas during the 1994/1995 R-EMAP project, c) to determine whether differences exist between fish communities from the different ecoregions of Kansas, and d) to test, and if necessary, refine the Index of Biological Integrity (IBI) developed during the 1994/1995 project for fish communities in Kansas ecoregions.
