All streams have bugs in them, called "stream insects and crustaceans." They are divided into three categories, those that are pollution sensitive, pollution tolerant, and more pollution tolerant. Canaries taken into coal mines don't like methane gas and will die if ex- posed, giving miners a hint that it's time to surface. Same with bugs in streams-if the pollution sensitive bugs are missing, the stream's water quality is in doubt and it's time to clean up that stream. Do you live near Evitts Run, Flowing Springs Run, Elk Branch? These are just three of the nine permanent streams in the county that the Jefferson County Watersheds Coalition (JCWC) monitors by collecting and counting bugs found among the rocks and plants at the bottoms of those streams. Stream monitors trained and dispatched by JCWC capture bugs by spreading a seine net across the stream, stirring up the bottom of the upstream flow, and collecting the bugs that stick in the seine net. The nets are carefully removed from the water, the catch poured into a bucket, and the critters tweezed into ice cube trays, the compartments of which separate the more than two dozen types of bugs. The stream monitor team then identifies the bugs and calcu- lates an overall score for that site called a Stream Quality Rating. The greater the num- ber of pollution sensitive or- ganisms found in that stream (stoneflies, hellgrammites, mayflies, or gilled snails, for ex- ample), the higher the Stream Quality Rating. If the monitors find few pollution sensitive bugs, but a large number of leeches, aquatic worms, black- fly and/or midge fly larvae, and snails, the quality of that stream would be questionable because leeches and worms, etc. can tolerate poor quality water. The Coalition has been counting bugs since 1998 and has developed enough informa- tion over those five years to conclude that Jefferson County streams, on a scale of Excel- lent-Good-Marginal-Poor are, in general, of Marginal quality. They aren't atrociously bad, but they are not good either. Some, like Elk Run, Evitts Run, and Rattlesnake Run are in Good shape; others like Town Run in Shepherdstown, are consistently Poor. A stream's water quality can be affected by many different thin~. One sure thing is trash and litter thrown in the stream. The Watersheds Coali- tion organizes stream cleanups to remove carelessly s~rewn lit- ter and trash (some of which is not so carelessly placed in the stream). For example, the 15th annual Potomac River Water- shed cleanup is scheduled for April 5. Volunteers are @el- come to join in cleaning trash and litter from the banks of the Potomac.
