Upper Scioto 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 slight delay of water quality degradation in the Upper Scioto River watershed over the next 50 years. The current status of the sampled sites changes in the years 10-20, but the sites do not approach the very poor status until year 30. This scenario also results in very poor status by the end of the investigated time frame.
