Muskingum Watershed Conservancy

Clear Fork Subdistrict of the
Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District

Clear Fork Subdistrict of the MWCD was formed June 7, 2015.  The MWCD is working with the United States Geological Survey of the U. S. Department of the Interior to study the waters of the Clear Fork.  Part of that study includes a gauge placed on the Main Street Bridge in Bellville (St. Rt. 13 Bridge or “The Blue Bridge”).

Currently, you are able to view the depth of the water on-line at that location, as well as, the Black Fork and the Clear Fork Reservoir.  With a few clicks of your mouse you can have the gauge text you when the water goes over a certain depth that you choose.
