Stillwater River Watershed

Final Impact Forecasts


Comparison of End Results (After 50 Years)

By comparing the current status of the Stillwater River watershed with the results of the three proposed scenarios at the end of 50 years, it is evident that all scenarios remained in either excellent or very good status by the end of the time sequence. It is obvious that unregulated growth provided less protection against water quality decline than addition of mitigation or growth control measures. Although this watershed exhibited little change throughout the 50-year sequence, it is important to note that without mitigation or growth controls, the sampled site was not able to maintain it's current status.
