Developing Quantifiable Management Objectives from Reference Conditions for Wadeable Streams in the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska

DEVELOPING QUANTIFIABLE MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES FROM REFERENCE CONDITIONS FOR WADEABLE STREAMS IN THE NATIONAL PETROLEUM RESERVE IN ALASKA

This report presents information describing the range of chemical, physical, and biological conditions of wadeable waters on the ACP ecoregion within the NPR-A. These results provide a current baseline of lotic aquatic resource conditions for evaluating IAP effectiveness and for future trend monitoring, while at the same time allowing the BLM to differentiate between anthropogenic and natural change over time. This report also demonstrates how lotic AIM data can be paired with long-term monitoring data and the assessment of conditions pre- and post-oil and gas development.
