According to the Ohio EPA 2009 Integrated Report, (Shown Below) “Biological and water quality monitoring conducted in the Whitewater River mainstream assessment unit (lower 8.26 miles of stream located in Ohio) in 1995 and 1996 showed full attainment of the designated EWH aquatic life use based on biological criteria. This is one of the few large Ohio rivers with 100% attainment of the aquatic life use and that supports exceptional aquatic communities.” This makes the Whitewater River one of the cleanest rivers in the state of Ohio.
