The aquatic macroinvertebrates of Rosebud Creek, Montana, were sampled between February 1976 and March 1977 to provide data on their abundance, distribution, and diversity. The sampling program was initiated during the first year of operation of the coal-fired power plants located at Colstrip, Montana. The purpose of the study was to determine if any immediate impacts of the power plant operation on the macroinvertebrate communities of Rosebud Creek could be detected and to provide data for comparisons with future studies. Rosebud Creek supported a diverse bottom fauna with high population numbers composed of species adapted to the turbid, silty conditions which are common in the prairie streams of eastern Montana. Intact riparian vegetation appeared to be important in maintaining stream bank stability and provided an essential food source.
