Description:
Abstract:
This data represents point sites sampled by NJDEP as part of its Ambient Biomonitoring Network (AMNET). Sites are sampled in every Watershed Management Area (WMA) in the State. Historically, the New Jersey Impairment Score (NJIS), based on family level taxonomy, was used for the entire state to make assessments at three levels of impairment; non-impaired, moderately impaired, and severely impaired. Indices were developed, based on genus level taxonomy and grouped into three distinct geographical regions: high gradient (above the Fall Line), low gradient (Coastal Plain excluding the Pinelands), and Pinelands (the boundary of the Pinelands National Reserve plus a 5-km buffer). These indices are called High Gradient Macroinvertebrate Index (HGMI), Coastal Plain Macroinvertebrate Index (CPMI), and the Pinelands Macroinvertebrate Index (PMI). These indices replace the NJIS and offer a greater level of resolution using four levels of assessment; excellent, good, fair, and poor. Round 1 data has been assessed using NJIS, while all subsequent rounds are assessed using the HGMI, CPMI, or PMI.
Purpose:
In 1992, NJDEP reactivated its Ambient Biomonitoring Network (AMNET) to support its Statewide Water Quality Inventory [305(b)], Impaired Waters [303(d)], and Watershed Programs. Under the program, sites in each of New Jersey's five Water Regions are sampled for benthic macroinvertebrates on a rotating schedule (once every five years). To date, the third round of sampling has been completed for all Water Regions. The results of the program have been incorporated into New Jersey's Environmental Performance Partnership Agreement (NEPPS) with USEPA as a primary environmental indicator of water quality impairment.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Spatial attributes were checked by intersecting with the NJDEP GIS data layer for hydrography developed from USGS quads (for water body names).
Logical_Consistency_Report:
NJDEP BFBM GIS staff visually reviewed the attribute table for consistent names. The "find unmatched" query in Microsoft Access was used to compare the attribute table against a database maintained by the AMNET biomonitoring. The NJDEP/BFBM AMNET staff reviewed hardcopy maps for all sites to make sure the points were at the correct locations, labeled correctly and had the correct impairment rating.
Completeness_Report:
This coverage is complete for the first thru fourth rounds of sampling. The fifth round is partially complete.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Coordinates obtained with GPS are accurate within 50 feet. However, many points are located on bridges, while the actual sampling location may be up to 300 feet upstream or downstream of the GPS position. Leaf cover or steep slopes usually prevented the collection of GPS coordinates at the actual, in-stream location.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report: Not applicable; vertical position information was not recorded.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Points were generated by: 1) Taking the *.pts and *.inf files output by Trimble Navigation's PFINDER software and running the NJDEP AML "gpsarc" to generate ArcInfo coverages, or 2) Using Trimble Navigation's Pathfinder Office software to generate ESRI ArcView shapefiles, or 3) Using Trimble Navigation's PFINDER or Pathfinder Office software to generate Latitude/Longitude coordinates and using the: a) "NJDEP Facility Locator" extension, b) "Zoom to Lat/Long" extension, or c) "Convert lat/long file to state plane shape" extensions to locate the points. The existing biopts shapefile was then edited and a point was added using the Draw Point tool. Attributes for the NJIS, Impairment Ratings, Habitat Assessment, the presence of abnormalities in chironomid larvae, and the site status were joined to this shapefile from the Microsoft Access database maintained by the NJDEP/BFBM staff that did the sampling with the points.

Attribute:
Attribute_Label: HABITATS
Attribute_Definition:
Habitat Score for supplemental round of sampling in the Lower Delaware Water Region. Parameters evaluated included in-stream substrate, channel morphology, bank structural features, and riparian vegetation. The area evaluated included the sample site and its immediate surroundings (usually within a 100 - 200 foot radius). The qualitative habitat assessment involves four condition categories, rating each parameter as optimal, suboptimal, marginal or poor based on recently revised EPA criteria (Barbour et. al, 1997 "Revision to Rapid Bioassessment Protocols for Use in Streams and Rivers: Periphyton, Benthic Macroinvertebrates, and Fish. USEPA 841-D-97-002). Note: a score of 999 indicates the site was not assessed for habitat

Attribute_Label: HAB_SCORE2
Attribute_Definition:
Habitat Score for the second round of sampling. Each gradient assessment is comprised of 10 individual habitat parameters. Each parameter is scored on a 0-20 scale corresponding to each of 4 categories reflecting a continuum of conditions (optimal, suboptimal, marginal, and poor). Scores for all parameters are tabulated for a final habitat score (a 0-200 scale) and habitat rating. Note: a score of 999 indicates the site was not assessed for habitat

Enumerated_Domain_Value: Poor
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
Extreme changes in structure of biological community and major loss of ecosystem function. Extreme changes in structure; wholesale changes in taxonomic composition; extreme alterations from normal densities and distributions; organism condition is often poor; ecosystem functions are severely altered

Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: Excellent
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
Minimal changes in structure of biological community and minimal changes in ecosystem function. Virtually all native taxa are maintained with some changes to biomass and/or abundance; ecosystem functions are fully maintained within the range of natural variability

Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: Fair
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
Moderate to major changes in structure of biological community and moderate changes in ecosystem function.

Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition_Source: NJDEP/BFBM
Enumerated_Domain:
Enumerated_Domain_Value: Good
Enumerated_Domain_Value_Definition:
Some evident changes in structure of the biotic community and minimal changes in ecosystem function. Some changes in structure due to loss of some rare native taxa; shifts in relative abundance of taxa but sensitive-ubiquitous taxa are common and abundant; ecosystem functions are fully maintained

Attribute_Label: HAB_SCORE3
Attribute_Definition:
Habitat Score for the third round of sampling. Each gradient assessment is comprised of 10 individual habitat parameters. Each parameter is scored on a 0-20 scale corresponding to each of 4 categories reflecting a continuum of conditions (optimal, suboptimal, marginal, and poor). Scores for all parameters are tabulated for a final habitat score (a 0-200 scale) and habitat rating. Note: a score of 999 indicates the site was not assessed for habitat
