 DuPage River Sampling Day

What Lives in our River?

On July 16th we had a great group of people come out to watch our professional crews sample for fish in the DuPage River in Shorewood. Displays with live fish and macroinvertebrates were available for people to get an up close view of the organisims that call the DuPage River home. Other experts were on hand talking about how we measure the condition of the river and how residents can help keep the river clean and healthy.

A major part of the data collection for our Bioassessment Program is the biological and habitat sampling. We contract with Midwest Biodiversity Institute (MBI) out of Ohio to collect samples of fish, macroinvertebrates (the bugs in the river) and assess the quality of the habitat of that segement of stream.  MBI also complies and analyzes all of the water and sediment chemistry data collected by Suburban Labs and produces our Bioassessment Report.
