Watershed Scenarios


It is important to consider human derived impacts on watershed quality. Before this can be done, however, characteristics specific to each watershed must be analyzed and information must be generated for each unique area.

This image of Ohio illustrates the location of 18 unique watersheds that were used to generate watershed quality scenarios over time.
