Assessment of Environmental Conditions in Bennetts Run at Kendal-Crosslands Based on Physical, Chemical, Macroinvertebrate, and Fish Monitoring

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

Bennetts Run is a small tributary to Brandywine Creek in southern Chester County, Pennsylvania, including portions of Kendal-Crosslands Communities and Longwood Gardens. This study focuses on more upstream segments, using water chemistry, temperature, aquatic macroinvertebrates, and fish to quantify the condition of Bennetts Run as it exits Longwood Gardens and enters Kendal-Crosslands, and then again when it exits the Kendal-Crosslands property.
