Southwest Ohio has the opposite problem of many parts of the country. This region, thanks to an underground aquifer following the Great Miami River and feeding into the Ohio River, has an abundant water source.

 

By 2025, it’s estimated two-thirds of the world will be “water-stressed.” Some people living in the southwestern United States already face water scarcity, or conditions are approaching water scarcity, according to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

 

However, water in this region is so abundant that economic development efforts are in place focused on promoting local water sources to attract new companies here, and building a base of local water-related businesses developing technologies for water conservation, quality and tracking water levels.

 

“We’re in a unique situation because we do have an adequate supply,” said Michele Ralston, spokeswoman for public water utility Greater Cincinnati Water Works.

 

“About 60 billion gallons of water flow past Cincinnati every day” in the Ohio River, and Cincinnati Water Works treats and distributes less than 1 percent of that for customers, Ralston said.

 

“It just puts into perspective of how much water we have here that other parts of the country don’t have,” she said.

 

Water sounds like it would be a good sell to food and beverage companies, and high-tech companies that need the water for cooling purposes. High water users in Butler County include poultry processor Koch Foods in Fairfield and the MillerCoors brewery in St. Clair Twp., according to local government officials.

 

Except no new companies have taken the bait.

 

Despite efforts for at least three years to attract companies for the water, not one new company has moved here solely for that reason, according to local economic development directors.
