Kahler Royer, C. A. (1999). A water quality index devised for the Des Moines River in central Iowa.
A water quality index was derived for the Des Moines River in central Iowa. The Des Moines Water Quality Index (DMRWQI) was based on the National Sanitation Foundation's Water Quality Index (NSFWQI). This index is intended to give the general public a better idea of the state of the water quality in the Des Moines River, with sampling stations beginning near Boone, Iowa, and continuing to immediately below the Lake Red Rock dam near Pella, Iowa. A sampling station on the Raccoon River at Van Meter, Iowa, is also included. The Des Moines River Water Quality Index examines dissolved oxygen saturation, pH, biochemical oxygen demand, nitrate and nitrite nitrogen, un-ionized ammonia nitrogen, turbidity and suspended solids for sampling stations along the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers and on Saylorville and Red Rock Lakes.
Rating curves are used to rank parameter values, and these rankings are aggregated into an index score for each station, each day sampling occurred. Index scores are calculated for the years 1973 through 1997. Maps of the watershed are provided. The trends in water quality of the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers are analyzed using non-parametric statistics.

AB: Downstream movements of age-0 Arctic grayling Thymallus arcticus from an indigenous fluvial population (Big Hole River) and two inlet-spawning, lacustrine populations (Upper Red Rock Lake and Ennis Reservoir) were compared in a natural stream. All fish were incubated and reared together in a hatchery and acclimated together in the stream before being released in the stream. All fluvial test fish were F-1 progeny of parents originating as gametes from wild fish but reared in a natural lake (1993 trials) or in a hatchery (1994 trials). The F-1 fish in four 1993 trials were progeny of parents whose rheotaxis had also been tested as age-0 young. In all four trials of fish with 7-14 d stream acclimation, significantly fewer fluvial than lacustrine fish (P lt 0.005) were recovered within 1 d in nets at a weir 1 km downstream from the release site. In two trials of fish with 1 d acclimation, significantly fewer fluvial than lacustrine fish were also recovered in one trial (P lt 0.005) but not in the other (P gt 0.500). Twice each year, 10-25 d after trials were concluded. the stream reach in which the test fish had been released was electrofished. Significantly more fluvial than lacustrine fish were captured in the stream in each of the four electrofishing surveys (P lt 0.005). The results support earlier evidence from laboratory trials that fluvial Arctic grayling have innately stronger positive rheotaxis than those from lacustrine populations. Such evidence of fluvial-adaptive behavior in Arctic grayling of the Big Hole River reinforces the importance of conserving this small, fluvial population, which is the only known one remaining for the species south of Canada and Alaska.
