Introduction

With the Flow Ohio tracks trends in your watershed, posting weekly updates from USGS WaterWatch Current Streamflow and Ohio EPA Division of Drinking and Ground Waters.

Find information on the river flows in your watershed each week. WTOH logs a snapshot of the volume of water flowing through the state’s rivers and tributaries, as per USGS Waterwatch current streamflow monitoring stations. The report captures your watershed flows from headwaters to outlet as of the date indicated. 

  • Rivers, creeks flowing much above normal or high (in the top 10% of flow volume recorded for that system) are shown in boldface;
  • flows that have breached action stage appear in red,
  • flows in flood stage appear in boldface red type.
  • Ice-affected flows are shown in italics.

Flow volume can change rapidly during snowmelt and rain events. All readings are posted as they appear as of our weekly update. During melting and rain events, check your local upstream station flow levels at the USGS WaterWatch Current Streamflow site or sign up for high flow alerts. Streamflow data is subject to review as sensors at the monitoring stations do malfunction from time to time. See USGS Provisional Data Statement at the end of this report for more information.

Impaired Water Bodies

The EPA requires all states update a draft list of impaired water bodies (the 303d list) every two years; providing a period for public comments, presenting the draft list to the EPA. The final 303d list is published as approved by the EPA, roughly every two years.

Impaired water bodies are defined as with contaminants measured above threshold levels set by the EPA Clean Water Act, or where the desired use is impaired.

USGS Groundwater Watch – data captured from well sites, including depth (in feet) from ground surface to reach water level; the higher measurement represents lower groundwater level.

Public Drinking Water systems are added to our database each week - active (A) community (C) systems sourced from groundwater or surface water for residential delivery, by watershed. Recent violations and enforcement orders, lead and copper test results as posted in Ohio EPA Drinking Water Watch are included. For more information, see report key at the end of this document.

EPA Lead and Copper Rule

USA Environmental Protection Agency upholds and enforces drinking water for public water systems through the Safe Water Act. Lead can enter the drinking water stream when corrosion occurs in certain types of distribution lines and connections Lead is toxic when consumed and accumulates in the body over time. The effects of lead toxicity may present as stomach upset to brain damage.

WTOH tracks lead and copper test results by watershed, as published by EPA Ohio on their Drinking Water Watch database.

Public Water systems sample and test for lead and copper at customer taps periodically through the year. While there is no safe level of lead in drinking water, and the maximum non-enforceable target for drinking water is set to 0, the EPA requires action steps be taken when more than 10% of customers are found to have 15 parts per billion lead at their taps, or 0.015 mg/l. Action level for copper is 1.3 mg/l.
