Habitat and biological assemblage data of streams within Tribal lands of the Pearl River Community of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, 2017-18

November 21, 2022

This data release contains habitat survey data (quantitative and qualitative) and biological assemblage data (periphyton, macroinvertebrate, and fish) collected among 8 stream sites within the Tribal lands of the Pearl River Community of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians (MBCI). The MBCI is a Federally recognized Native American Tribe and the Pearl River Community, located near Philadelphia, Mississippi, is responsible for protecting the quality of surface waters from point and non-point sources of pollution and restoring waters considered impaired of their designated use. The MBCI cooperated with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to conduct a baseline study at selected stream sites within and contiguous to the Pearl River Community. For this data release, habitat and biological data were collected between February 2017 to August 2018.
