Stressor Identification for Peabody Creek (Port Angeles)
Stressor Identification for Peabody Creek (Port Angeles) (Number of pages: 46) (Publication Size: 3733KB)
|Description||Peabody Creek runs from the foothills of the Olympic Mountains to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The upper reaches run through relatively undisturbed forest, while lower reaches run through suburban/urban settings before being channeled through a culvert in the lower 0.2 miles. The lower reach of Peabody Creek is listed for Category 5 impairment for bioassessment on Washington State’s 303(d) list. This report outlines an application of the stressor ID process to identify the most likely causes of biological impairment in Peabody Creek. Results suggest impairment associated with urbanization, yet a more comprehensive and thorough assessment of conditions in Peabody Creek is recommended to definitively link shifts in biological communities to the effects of stressors associated with increased urbanization.|
