A survey of the Fox River was accomplished during 1982 by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and the Illinois Department of Conservation. Sampling was accomplished at 23 tributary stations for water quality (seasonal), habitat, sediment chemistry, macroinvertebrates and fish. Stations were established on the major tributaries of the Fox River including the N. Branch Nippersink, Nippersink (2), Boone, Flint, Tyler, Poplar, Ferson, Mill (2), Waubansee, Blackberry (2), Big Rock (2), Little Rock, Somonauk (2), Little Indian, Indian (3), and Buck Creeks. From these data, environmental quality was summarized utilizing various indices including water quality (WQI), macroinvertebrates (MBI), fish (IBI), and habitat (PIBI).
