Wellington Ditch Report

Wellington Ditch is a small drainage ditch that receives stormwater and industrial process water from buildings along College Avenue and 10th Street. Over the years the City has received many reports of discolored water in the ditch, and two fish kills have also been reported. In 2016, Goshen College student conducted research into possible biological and chemical causes for these events along with any potential upstream sources.

There have been two historic permit violations resulting in illicit discharges and reports of discoloration continue, but it appears that "several stressors on water quality have been reduced over the last decades." Fish are also regularly present, which indicates at least a basic level of water quality. Read the full report below for more information:
