Scioto River & Mill, Bokes, Fulton Creek Watershed

Final Impact Forecasts


Comparison of End Results (After 50 Years)

By comparing the current status of the Scioto River & Mill, Bokes, Fulton Creek watershed with the results of the three proposed scenarios at the end of 50 years, it is evident that water quality in all scenarios changed by the end of the time sequence. It is obvious that unregulated growth and addition of mitigation provided no protection against eventual water quality at the end of the sequence. In contrast, by adding growth control measures to mitigation steps, the water quality of the sampled site is in excellent condition by year 50.
