Maryland Biological Stream Survey
Entry ID: MD_DNR_BSS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Maryland Biological Stream Survey developed as a response to questions
raised by the Maryland Synoptic Stream Survey of 1987 (see "Acid Deposition"
pages for full discussion) and the MBSS Pilot Study of 1993. Broadly stated,
the MBSS was designed to take periodic snapshots of our streams, identify our
best and worst areas, find out what caused them to become bad or stay healthy,
and help target streams and watersheds for protection, restoration, or both. In
short, the MBSS provides information critical to managing our aquatic
resources, including the Chesapeake Bay.
