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 Walnut Creek watershed over the next 50 years. The current status remains throughout the first 10 years and is only minimally altered in by 30 years. At 40 years and beyond, the more sensitive areas approach poor to very poor condition while the remaining sections appear less affected. Change is evident after 30 years, but especially after 40, the once exceptional to very good quality ranges between very good to poor.
