This report summarizes aquatic community, hydrologic, and water-quality data collected or compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for Apopka, Bugg, Rock, and Wekiva springs from October 1, 2005 to September 30, 2006. Aquatic community data are summarized for quarterly collections of benthic macroinvertebrates, and fishes collected during one sampling event per spring. Hydrologic data for each spring were compiled from the USGS, St. Johns River Water Management District, and a private landowner. Water-quality data collected by the USGS consisted of quarterly psysicochemical, chlorophyll-a, and pheophytin-a measurements; water-quality data were collected on the same days that the benthic macroinvertebrates were sampled.
