Upper Great Miami 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 Upper Great Miami River watershed over the next 50 years (and even contributes to an increase from good to very good at one site). The status of 10 and 20 year projections are better than the current conditions. At 30-50 years, two of the sampled sites remain unchanged while one declines from fair to poor.
