Biological monitoring is essential to describing and protecting biological resources. There are many benefits to using benthic invertebrate measures as cumulative effects indicators. In this study, benthic invertebrates were collected from 23 low elevation Okanagan stream sites between 1999 and 2004. Water and sediment chemistry samples were collected during the study to complement the biological sampling. Water quality data indicated that in urban and agriculture settings, bacteriological measures frequently exceed drinking and recreational water quality guidelines.
