News-Current Report

BEAVERCREEK — The Little Miami Watershed Network, The City of Beavercreek and the Beavercreek Women’s League are partnering to raise awareness about the importance of keeping the tributaries of the Little Miami River clean.

The biggest threat to the river is hard surfaces like streets and roofs. Because Beavercreek is a popular place to live, many areas are at 30 percent impervious surfaces or three times the level that begins to impact the health of the river.

Little Beaver Creek and all Beavercreek streams are an important part of the Little Miami Watershed. Signs such as this one will be posted at the major intersections of roads and streams.

Storm drains will be getting a decal to remind citizens to only let rainwater go down the drains. Grass, leaf litter and pet wastes, motor oils, soapy waters, and medicines are not good for the streams and rivers and all who depend on them for life or use them for recreation.
