Bennett’s Run is a small tributary to Brandywine Creek in southern Chester County, Pa., where a watershed conservation plan is being developed. To inform this plan, this study is measuring water chemistry, temperature, aquatic macroinvertebrates, and fish to quantify the condition of Bennett’s Run between Longwood Gardens and Kendal-Crosslands Communities, and again downstream from Kendal-Crosslands.
