Lower Auglaize River Watershed

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 Lower Auglaize River watershed did not help in slowing the decline in water quality status. Additional growth regulations, which would generally reduce the adverse affects of urbanization, does not positively effect this sampled site. In this scenario, growth controls and mitigation efforts have achieved the same results as scenario 2 where only mitigation efforts were implemented. The numerical values did show a marked increase in quality, however, the increase was not enough to result in a new category shift.
