With the Flow Ohio – Watershed Report for the Week of Nov 22-28
Public Drinking Water Systems by County

By Gillian Ward

 

With the Flow Ohio – Watershed Report for the Week of Nov 22-28

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

USGS WaterWatch Current Streamflow – data is captured from real time monitoring stations, including the percentage of normal (mean) flow, flow volume in cubic feet per second, and flow depth. A river or stream that has reached action stage for flood preparation will be highlighted. This report contains USGS Current Stream Flows: as at Nov 17, 2021

Public Drinking Water Systems by County - as listed in Ohio EPA database; these include active and inactive systems, off all classes C: community delivery year round, NTNC: serving at least 25, the same individuals during 6 months of the year; and TNC: transient non-community serves at least 25, transient individuals, 60 or more days of the year. For more information, see report key at the end of this document.

Active community drinking water systems are classified by EPA as serving fifteen or more connections and providing water to the same people year-round. The EPA works with the states, tribes, water system authorities and water system operators to ensure safe drinking water for Americans.

EPA Lead and Copper Rule

Water systems sample and test for lead and copper periodically through the year.

Lead and copper contamination come from plumbing, common to certain types of lines and connections

A lead level of 0.015mg/L is action level (AL); the action level for copper is 1.3 mg/L.

WaterToday Ohio will be looking at the Lead and Copper test results posted for active community drinking water systems by watershed.

1 Southern Lake Erie

  • Conneaut Creek drains an area of 175 sq miles in Ashtabula County; at Conneaut station, the flow is rated “above normal”; 202% above mean flow rate at 569 cfs. Depth of flow is just over 3ft, almost doubled from last week. The water temperature gauge is still not registering as of this report.

1b Ashtabula River - Chagrin River Watershed

Counties: Lake, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Portage

  • Chagrin River drains an area of 246 sq miles of Lake County into Lake Erie. Flow is above normal at Willoughby station, 184% above mean and discharging 563 cfs. The gage height (flow depth) is just over 4 ft. (Last week we reported the flow depth as 33 ft, this likely should have been 3.3 ft.)

  • Cuyahoga River drains an area of 788 sq miles in Ohio. With its headwaters in Geauga County, it takes a loop south into Portage and then hooks back north through Summit, passing through Cuyahoga County to discharge into Lake Erie. At Hiram Rapids, the nearest monitoring station to the headwaters in Geauga County, the flow is normal, 101% above mean at 185 cfs; at Old Portage, 82% above mean at 267 cfs; at Jaite station normal, 107% above mean at 490 cfs; at Independence station, flowing normal, 110% above mean at 736 cfs; the flow at the Newburgh Heights monitoring station nearest the outlet in Cuyahoga County, as of Nov 16 at 8:30 am EST, is normal, 67% above mean at 817 cfs; water temperature is 11.5°

Report Key

Water systems are classified according to rules developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and each state. Water Systems fall into two broad categories: public and non-public.

Public water systems are classified as one of the following:

C – Community

Serves at least 15 service connections used by year-round residents or regularly serves 25 year-round residents.

NTNC – Non-Transient Non-Community

Serves at least the same 25 non-residential individuals during 6 months of the year.

NC – Transient Non-Community

Regularly serves at least 25 non-residential individuals (transient) during 60 or more days per year.


This classification is based on information in each of the following five areas:

1.

Quantity and type of population served (e.g., transient, residential).

2.

Number of days served (or annual operating period (i.e., the period(s) of the year that the water system is in operation)).

3.

Number of service connections (i.e., the number of connections for each service area such as commercial, agricultural, residential).

4.

Activity status of the water system (i.e., active, or inactive).

5.

Sources of water (e.g., reservoir, well. Sources of water may be active or inactive depending on whether the source is seasonal or year-round. The current date determines active or inactive status).
