The Mill Creek Valley Conservancy District seeks responsible flood control options for the Mill Creek flood plain in Hamilton and Butler Counties, Ohio.
The Mill Creek is a 28.4 mile stream in southwest Ohio ending in the Ohio River in Cincinnati. The watershed covers 166 square miles and 37 local governments. 1 million people live, work and travel in this watershed on a daily basis. The creek served as an extremely valuable and significant resource in Cincinnati's history. It supported the economic growth and development of the region. It was a hunting path for Native Americans, a power supply for pioneers' mills, a canal route for industries and an escape route for fleeing slaves. International companies such as Ford Motor Company, GE Aircraft Engines and Procter & Gamble operate along the Mill Creek.
