Lower Auglaize River Watershed

Scenario 2 - Consequences of Watershed Growth Over Time


Scenario 2

Increased Urbanization with Land Use Mitigation Efforts

Addressing some of the consequences of increased urbanization with land use mitigation efforts results in a reduced amount of water quality degradation in the Lower Auglaize River watershed over the next 50 years. The current fair status declines after 20 years instead of 10, but still remains at poor status throughout the time lapse. Although the amount of degradation is slower than in scenario 1, change is still evident.
