The health and integrity of a creek, river, or wetland can be measured in many ways. One common monitoring technique is to measure chemical or physical parameters such as dissolved oxygen, turbidity and conductivity. A rapidly growing monitoring technique is to measure the aquatic insect community. These techniques can be done by professionals or by professionals training and overseeing volunteer groups.
