Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Benthic monitoring sites" (2000)
Description: The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Division of Water Quality, with funding from the NC Clean Water Management Trust Fund and in cooperation with the NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, developed the digital benthic monitoring data to enhance water quality assessment & plan review of Trust Fund project applications. This file identifies points where benthic macroinvertebrate monitoring has occurred. This file enables users to review the current rating of water quality for each sampling site based on the monitoring results. These data were created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
