Water algal communities are sensitive to ecological anxieties and are used as signs of water quality. Diatom communities, water chemistry, and land use were determined at each website to test the hypothesis that differences in land use indirectly impact diatom communities, via changes in water top quality. Diatom types variety was most variable in disturbed areas with poorer water quality and was correlated with land use and overall alkalinity, complete firmness, and specific conductance. Diatom communities in the 3 streams replied to land use via its effects on water quality. The outcomes of this study show the use of diatom assemblages as signs of water quality, which can be connected to land use in a landmark.
