Over 40 participants were in attendance for the December 2, 2020 virtual meeting of the Water Team/Great Miami River Network. We heard very informative presentations about ongoing planning and projects in the Stillwater River and Great Miami River watersheds. First was Kate Hamilton from the Ohio EPA Division of Surface Water, who explained the state’s new Total Maximum Daily Load process and where the Stillwater River stands in that new process – the Loading Analysis Plan.

Then Dr. Bob Hawley from Sustainable Streams LLC shared the strategy and designs for projects in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore off-channel floodplains along the main stem of the Great Miami River, with the current project in Troy (Miami County) and a future project slated for Tipp City (Miami County). The Troy project is removing over 20 acre-feet of topsoil to restore flood storage capacity and reconnecting this flood area to the main channel.
