According to the Ohio EPA in 2001, the Great Miami River and Loramie Creek Watershed is impaired primarily by habitat and flow alterations, sediment deposition and nutrient enrichment. These river and stream impairments are a direct result of human development and land use changes in the surrounding area.To see the most recent water quality reports from Ohio EPA go to Total Maximum Daily Load Program
