Hunnicutt Creek Restoration Project is an ongoing effort started in 2013 with the goal of re-establishing the natural functions and conditions of a degraded watershed located on Clemson University's campus. The current research is focused on monitoring key factors of an aquatic ecosystem that indicate habitat viability and overall water quality. Data contributing to our research include the levels of bacteria, dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity, and the quantified species richness and abundance of amphibians and macroinvertebrates.The results presented in this poster are the baseline comparisons between the improved sections of Hunnicutt Creek and identified reference sites.
