Research was conducted in the Puget Sound area of Washington State at sites with varied urban development and found that the stream biological condition declined as impervious cover (IC) level increased at all spatial scales. Results call for integrative management that considers a range of ecological stressors in the urban areas that requires different solutions based on the scale that the management effort will be applied.
