    50 years it is evident that although all scenarios will experience some degradation there are significantly different outcomes It is obvious that unregulated growth provides no protection against water quality decline throughout the watershed Mitigation and mitigation plus growth control measures are able to reduce the severity of the water quality decline Mitigation efforts and mitigation efforts in conjunction with growth controls affect both the rate and the degree of

    quality throughout the Lower Olentangy River watershed currently ranges from good to poor and will steadily decrease over the next 50 years in the presence of increased urbanization with no mitigation or growth controls Substantial degradation is apparent within the first 10 years and all points sampled would be in very poor condition by within another 10 year time frame With continued increased urbanization without any regulations this area rapidly

    of the consequences of increased urbanization with land use mitigation efforts results in a reduced amount of water quality degradation in the Lower Olentangy River watershed over the next 50 years Generally the current status remains throughout the first 10 years but sharply declines by 20 years At 30 years and beyond the all the areas approach very poor conditions Change is evident after 10 years but careful attention should
