Ottawa 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 Ottawa River watershed over the next 50 years. The current fair to very poor status remains throughout the first 20 years and is only altered at one site in years 30-50. Although the overall quality of this watershed is still not desirable, mitigation efforts have helped to cub further degradation.
