Description Regulatory assessments of adverse environmental impacts are frequently based on the monitoring of benthic invertebrates. These sediment-dwelling organisms, being sedentary, respond to both short-term acute and long-term chronic anthropogenic stresses at a single geographic point and are useful indicators of environmental conditions.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
