Around the watershed


A local partnership between farmers and wastewater treatment plants to improve water quality is again gaining national attention.



Learn more about our region's water through MCD's new blog. MCD's Water Resources Manager, Mike Ekberg, will cover national studies, MCD studies, and a variety of water-related topics.



The Miami Conservancy District celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. But MCD might never have been formed if not for the determination and perseverance of a few men.



A year-long study by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) validates the economic potential of the Great Miami River corridor, from bringing more tourists and generating additional small businesses to attracting additional workforce and driving larger businesses to the region.

MCD has released its new report on water quality and quantity in Great Miami River Watershed.



The eighth annual Greene County Test Your Well and Soil event is set for Tuesday, Sept. 16, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Xenia High School cafeteria, 303 Kinsey Road in Xenia.


Repaving that was scheduled to begin along the Great Miami River Recreation Trail in Moraine, West Carrollton and Miamisburg has been delayed but is still expected to be complete by the end of August.



Cyclists will soon have a smoother ride along parts of the Great Miami River Recreation Trail. Construction of four sections of the trail is set to begin July 28.



June brought an average of 5.95 inches of precipitation in the Great Miami River Watershed 1.88 inches above normal for the month. The high station was Lockington Dam (9.15 inches), and the low station was Englewood Dam (3.41 inches). As of the end of June, the Great Miami River Watershed had received 22.99 inches of precipitation in 2014 which is 2.73 inches above normal for this point in the year.  



Just a reminder, Montgomery County is replacing the Ridge Avenue Bridge so the Stillwater River Bikeway has a short detour through Triangle Park. Trail users are re-routed along the Great Miami River Bikeway between DeWeese Park and the southern tip of Triangle Park. Construction is expected to be completed by September of 2015.



Great story about the Great Miami River Trail.



MCD dams and levees prevented additional flooding during last night's intense rainfall, which closed parts of I-70 and I-75.



All five of The Miami Conservancy District (MCD) dams are storing floodwater this afternoon after snowmelt earlier this week, saturated ground from a long winter, and less than an inch of rain.
