Scenario 3 - Consequences of Watershed Growth Over Time


Scenario 3

Growth Controls

In this watershed, implementing growth controls in addition to mitigation efforts in the Blanchard River watershed assisted in improving the water quality status. Additional growth regulations significantly reduced the adverse affects of urbanization and even fostered better quality over time. In this scenario, growth controls and mitigation efforts have changed the status from fair to good in both sites after 30 years.
