Puget Sound Stream Benthos

Macroinvertebrates in Bellevue creeks Project, City of Bellevue

The City of Bellevue and the King County Water and Land Resources Division use the Benthic Index of Biotic Integrity (B-IBI; Fore et al. 1996) as a tool for quantitative, long-term bioassessment of streams as they respond to urbanization, watershed management, and restoration activities.
