Sugar Creek

Sugar Creek, near New Palestine, Indiana. Sugar Creek is part of a long-term USGS stream monitoring project, and was one of 72 U.S. streams and rivers investigated for pesticide occurrence. On average, 26 pesticides were detected in samples collected from Sugar Creek during 2013–17; 16 of the 122 samples collected at this site had a Pesticide Toxicity Index score that predicted potential chronic toxicity to benthic invertebrates.
