Benthic Macroinvertebrate Data from 20 Surface Water Sites within the Lower St. Johns River Basin

One of the long-term goals of the St. Johns River Water Management District is determining the degree to which biological communities in the District's water bodies have been impaired. To further this goal, a survey of the benthic macroinvertebrate communities of the Lower St. Johns River and its tributaries was performed. Between March and August 2000, District staff collected four replicate petite Ponar grab sediment samples at each of 20 surface water sites. Water & Air Research, Inc. (Water & Air) was retained to conduct laboratory analysis of samples and preliminary evaluation of benthic invertebrate community composition and structure.
