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.

Flows:

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

  • Rivers and 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.

Groundwater Level

With source data from USGS Groundwater Watch, measured at test well sites, including depth (in feet) from ground surface to reach water level; the higher measurement represents a lower groundwater level.

HABs

Hazardous Algal Blooms form in lakes and ponds. Reports are tracked by Ohio EPA BeachGuard. Alerts are reported here by the watershed area, listing the County, the water body impacted, with location details and date of the report. If you see a bloom, fill out the report on Ohio EPA https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/ac459f1f0b344bfa93c0486b028fbba6

And email it to: HABmailbox@epa.ohio.gov

Spills

Reports are updated weekly by watershed area, citing County and GPS coordinates as per the data source, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Environmental Response. Users of this data should be aware that inconsistencies and inaccuracies may exist if these data are compared to data from other time periods due to changes in methods of data collection and mapping.

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.

Refer to the Impaired Water Body list for Ohio on WaterToday Ohio.

 USGS Provisional Data Statement

Data are provisional and subject to revision until they have been thoroughly reviewed and received final approval.

Current condition data relayed by satellite or other telemetry are automatically screened to not display improbable values until they can be verified.

Provisional data may be inaccurate due to instrument malfunctions or physical changes at the measurement site. Subsequent review based on field inspections and measurements may result in significant revisions to the data.

Data users are cautioned to consider carefully the provisional nature of the information before using it for decisions that concern personal or public safety or the conduct of business that involves substantial monetary or operational consequences.

Information concerning the accuracy and appropriate uses of these data or concerning other hydrologic data may be obtained from the USGS.

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.

Public Water systems sample and test for lead and copper at customer taps periodically throughout 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 0.0015 mg/l. Action level for copper is 1.3 mg/l.
