Watershed Health Monitoring: BIBI

This file lists annual-average benthic biological integrity scores for weighted sites sampled by the Watershed Health Monitoring Program through 2016. Adjusted spatial weights are also provided.

X BIBI_2018categoryx_bibi_2018categoryx_bibi_2018categoryTextCondition class (GOOD, FAIR, or POOR) based on 2009-2016 reference site BIBI scores (average per site during 2009-2016). The 5th percentile to less than 25th percentile = "FAIR". Percentiles are evaluated per Scoring Region. Reference data (sites and raw counts) are found in the Watershed Health Monitoring Database by referencing study IDs that contain "WHM_SEN" and WHM_BIO". Access the database here: https://ecology.wa.gov/Research-Data/Monitoring-assessment/River-stream-monitoring/Habitat-monitoring/Watershed-health. For calulated BIBI values, access the Puget Sound Stream Benthos: https://www.pugetsoundstreambenthos.org
