Scioto River & Mill, Bokes, Fulton Creek Watershed

Scenario 1 - Consequences of Watershed Growth Over Time

Scenario 1

Increased Urbanization with No Regulations

Water quality throughout the Scioto River & Mill, Bokes, Fulton Creek watershed will decrease over the next 50 years in the presence of increased urbanization with no mitigation or growth controls. Degradation is already apparent after 10 years and approaches very poor quality within 30 years. Currently, the sampled site is in good condition. However, with continued increased urbanization without any regulations, the watershed quickly changes to fair, poor and eventual very poor condition over time.
