Aquifer Preservation Subdistrict
MCD created the Aquifer Preservation Subdistrict in 1997 to develop and maintain an ongoing, watershed-wide program to support comprehensive protection and management of the Great Miami River Watershed’s groundwater resources.
The goals and projects of the Aquifer Preservation Subdistrict are guided by a Liaison Committee of stakeholders to ensure that local and regional needs are addressed throughout the watershed.
The Aquifer Preservation Subdistrict includes all, or portions of, nine counties including Butler, Clark, Greene, Hamilton, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby, and Warren counties.
Partnering with a variety of federal, state, and local governments, the Aquifer Preservation Subdistrict helps communities develop and implement source water protection plans; provides educational programs; and monitors, analyzes, and reports on the conditions of the aquifer.
The Aquifer Preservation Subdistrict conducts quality and quantity studies of the buried valley aquifer, provides funds to communities to protect their drinking water sources, and helps citizens collect quality and quantity data on their own private wells through the Groundwater Monitors and Test Your Well programs.
