Abstract
The purpose of the 1992 coastal plain stream study was to evaluate ecological status in acid sensitive and non-acid sensitive coastal plain streams by assessing biological, chemical and physical conditions. These various conditions were also examined to determine possible correlations with land use data for the various streams. A fish community metric approach defined as an Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) was used to determine if acid sensitive streams were impacted. Acid-base chemical conditions (pH and Acid Neutralizing Capacity) measured in selected streams in 1992 were also compared with similar conditions evaluated during the 1987 Maryland Synoptic Stream Chemistry Survey.
