Comments Requested for the Draft Lower Mahoning River Watershed Biological and Water Quality Report.

Oct 04, 2018

The Draft Lower Mahoning River Watershed Biological and Water Quality Report is now available for public comment at the following link https://epa.ohio.gov/dsw/wq.  The comment period ends on November 1, 2018.

The draft plan outlines the summary and findings from the Ohio EPA’s survey of select Lower Mahoning River subwatershed in 2011 and the larger Lower Mahoning River watershed survey in 2013.  The Ohio EPA surveyed the Meander Creek and Yellow Creek watershed at Eastgate’s request to provide relevant and updated water quality information for the formation of the Yellow Creek and Meander Creek watershed action plans.  Data from that sampling period was incorporated into the larger 2013 Lower Mahoning River watershed survey.
