Learn about the health of streams in your neighborhood!
In Hamilton County we are fortunate to have a wealth of information on the biological, chemical and physical integrity of our local streams. This is thanks to a state-of-the-art stream monitoring program implemented by the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSDGC) with the assistance of the Midwest Biodiversity Institute (MBI), in addition to an active network of citizen scientist in Southwest Ohio.
You can download reports detailing the chemical, physical, and biological health of hundreds of stream sampling locations from MSDGC's water quality webpage. You can also access local volunteer water quality information via an interactive map at www.streambank.info. These on-line tools empower you to explore the condition of streams in your community!
