The last twenty years have been a time of incredible economic and population growth in the watershed region as the Mill Creek became a strategic location for green-product manufacturing. The communities within the region choose to work independently, fighting with one another to attract the new industry to their borders. Only the locations that were adjacent to the Mill Creek were able to experience the economic prosperity, thus drawing residents away from the non-industrial communities. This triggered a great population shift across the region, creating major disparities between the jurisdictions. The economic success of the region masked significant social, environmental, and regional issues that plagued the region during this time.
