The Pacific Northwest Stream Flow Duration Method was first developed for Oregon, and is now applicable to Washington and Idaho. It is a scientific tool developed by the EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide a rapid assessment framework to distinguish between ephemeral, intermittent and perennial streams. This method assesses seven indicators, three of which relate to aquatic macroinvertebrates.

The scope of this workshop is to advance participants' expertise in the sampling protocol and identification of macroinvertebrates within the context of the Stream flow Duration Method.
