Ohio EPA has sampled Spring Fork  subwatershed 20 times at a total of  7 sites since 1992.   There are a  few different designated uses for this subwatershed including Exceptional Warm Water Habitat(EWH) and Warm Water Habitat(WWH).    This summer, Spring Fork is in the process of testing.  This information will be listed as soon as it is available. 

 

Available pictures near each site can be accessed by clicking on the (u) for the upstream view of the site or the (d) for the downstream view next to the site number.  More pictures are available in the Spring Fork picture album or map
