Abstract : The purpose of this interim report is to present the findings of a study concerning water resources development in the vicinity of Fairfield, Ohio. The study was undertaken as a part of the Miami River, Little Miami River, and Mill Creek Basins. The study includes consideration of water resources along Pleasant Run Creek and its tributaries--High School Tributary, General Motors Ditch, and East Fork Tributary. The study area includes the City of Fairfield located in Butler County and upper reaches of Pleasant Run Creek located in extreme northern Hamilton County. The significant identified water and related land resources problems and opportunities in the study area are the direct result of flooding and urban expansion. The most serious problems are caused by headwater flooding on the reaches of Pleasant Run Creek between Nilles Road and East Fork Tributary. The flooding on the Great Miami River does not cause significant problems within the study area. Additional outdoor recreation and open space needs exist and opportunities exist for their realization in conjunction with resource requirements for flood control plans.
