Western Lake Erie Basin CEAP Biological Endpoints Partnership
NRCS and partners in the Western Lake Erie Basin (WLEB) have initiated a project to integrate biological endpoints in CEAP water quality modeling. This is an effort of the CEAP Wildlife and Cropland components and builds on work conducted by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and other CEAP partners in the Great Lakes region, whereby stream fish sample data were used to associate aquatic community status with water quality and other stream health metrics. Prior or on-going CEAP Watersheds studies in the basin may also contribute data and modeling insights to the project.
On May 16, 2012, an interdisciplinary WebEx meeting was held to inform the CEAP Steering Committee, partners and others working in the region, and other interested parties on the launch of this effort and to foster communication among relevant partners.
