    Organization: The Miami Conservancy District 

    General Manager

    Miami Conservancy District

    Dayton, Ohio

    The Organization

    The Miami Conservancy District (“MCD”) is a political subdivision of the State of Ohio organized in 1915 to develop and implement a plan to reduce the effects of flooding and conserve water for beneficial public uses. The MCD’s mission statement reads: “Protecting lives, property and economic vitality within the Great Miami River Watershed through an integrated and balanced system that provides unfailing flood protection, preserves water resources, and promotes enjoyment of our waterways.” The MCD is a respected and valued leader, employer, provider and partner in flood reduction, water stewardship and recreation. The MCD is organized pursuant to Chapter 6101 of the Ohio Revised Code.

    The MCD is one of the largest and among the oldest conservancy districts in the State of Ohio and covers all or portions of 9 counties in the southwest portion of Ohio. MCD is divided into a Main District (flood protection) and two subdistricts – the Aquifer Preservation Subdistrict (groundwater) and the River Corridor Improvement

    Subdistrict (river fun).

    • Main District is responsible for an integrated flood protection system that significantly reduces flood risk from the Great Miami River in cities from Piqua to Hamilton. MCD developed and built the system of five dry dams, along with 55 miles of levee; and preserved thousands of acres of floodplain.

    • Aquifer Preservation Subdistrict supports stewardship of the region’s water resources, protecting and improving the quantity and quality of water for people living and working within the Great Miami River Watershed. MCD’s non-regulatory role focuses on technical data, analysis, and expertise. MCD collaborates with elected officials and community leaders, providing them with valued insight to support the region’s overall health, vitality, and growth.

    • River Corridor Improvement Subdistrict was created to enhance public use and enjoyment of river corridors utilizing improvements, amenities, and activities within and along the river corridors. More than 40 years ago, MCD built the first 8-mile bike trail loop in downtown Dayton – a trail segment that has become the backbone of the largest paved trail network in the country, with 340 miles. And the region boasts more than 290 miles of rivers and streams to fish and paddle.

    For 2020, MCD anticipates operating revenues of $10.6MM generated primarily from assessments of property owners and jurisdictions that benefit from MCD’s services. The organization receives additional funding from grants, intergovernmental agreements, fees, and other sources.

    The organization is administered by a three-member Board of Directors, which meets quarterly, and the General Manager reports directly to the Board. All meetings of the Board of Directors must be conducted in full compliance with the Ohio Sunshine Law. In addition, the organization has a three-member Board of Appraisers which meets as needed. The powers of the Board of Directors and Board of Appraisers are set forth in the Ohio Revised Code.

    The MCD’s political jurisdiction includes all or portions of the following 9 counties in southwestern Ohio: Butler, Clark, Greene, Hamilton, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby, and Warren. The Ohio Revised Code provides that the Conservancy Court, comprised of 9 Common Pleas Court judges from counties in the Conservancy District, shall exercise the jurisdiction conferred by the Conservancy Act.

    Members of the MCD Board of Directors and Board of Appraisers are appointed by the judges of the Conservancy Court to oversee the operations of the District. The current GM, Janet Bly, joined MCD in 1994 and has served as General Manager since 2002. She has announced her plan to retire once a new GM is appointed. As a result, the Board of Directors has launched a national executive search to identify her successor.

    The General Manager’s office is based in the organization’s administrative offices at 38 E. Monument Avenue, Dayton, Ohio 45402; telephone 937.223.1271.

    Dayton and Southwestern Ohio

    The Dayton MSA has over 850,000 people and the City of Dayton is the 6th largest city in the State of Ohio. The 9 counties in Southwestern Ohio that make up MDC’s political jurisdiction have over 2.3MM people. The Dayton area has a history of innovation and invention and today the community continues to house significant industrial, aerospace, and technological/engineering research activity. Much of this innovation is due in part to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and its place within the community.

    With the decline of heavy manufacturing over the years, the regional economy has focused on services including financial services, legal, healthcare and government. Home to the University of Dayton as well as 13 other public and private colleges and universities, the region has over 45,000 college students. The region benefits from an outstanding quality of life with a variety of housing options, strong public and independent K-12 school choices, orchestra, ballet, opera, theatre, art museum and recreational and college and professional sports teams.
