This paper focuses on the river health assessment composed of multiple biological indicators of benthic algae, macroinvertebrates and fish. Several important aspects were identification of core sensitive indicators, evaluation and selections of suitable reference and threshold values, consideration of river classification and application simplicity. This approach can promote the widely application of river health assessment at the large regional and national scales.
