    with the results of the three proposed scenarios at the end of 50 years it is evident that although all scenarios will experience some degradation there are significantly different outcomes between scenarios 1 and 2 or 3 It is obvious that unregulated growth provides no protection against water quality decline throughout the watershed In this watershed regulations are able to reduce the severity of the water quality decline and are

  • east fork Scenarios
    Little Miami River watershed will significantly decrease over the next 50 years in the presence of increased urbanization with no mitigation or growth controls Degradation is already apparent within the first 10 years and quickly deteriorates to very poor over time Currently the sampled sites range from good to very good condition However with continued increased urbanization without any regulations the watershed quickly deteriorates to poor status After only 30

  • east fork Scenarios
    Efforts Addressing some of the consequences of increased urbanization with land use mitigation efforts results in a delay of water quality degradation in the East Fork Little Miami River watershed over the next 50 years The current status of the sampled sites changes in the first 10 years but the sites do not approach the poor status until year 30 This scenario also results in very poor status by the
