Speciﬁ cally, we examine the role that stream macroinvertebrates have played or could play in informing water quality deci- sions given the current policy framework, using this framework as the organizational structure for the review. Macroinvertebrates, as biological indicators of stream water quality, can be utilized to identify impaired waters, determine aquatic life stressors, set pollutant load reductions, and
