Report: Stillwater River Actually Moves

Report: Stillwater River Actually Moves

MIAMI COUNTY – The saying goes, never judge a river by its name. We learned that the hard way when Mad River was extremely nice to us. This also holds true with the Stillwater River, which actually does not sit still at all.

A river is a natural flowing watercourse, which means that it always moves. The Stillwater River is no different, despite the name. That said, it may be the least realistic name for any river on earth – and it just happens to pass through Miami County!

The MCBC Natural Research Team (MCBCNRT) conducted further Wikipedia research and learned that the Stillwater River is actually 69 miles long – which is pretty hilarious if you’re into that kind of humor. In many ways, this river is just one big joke. 

The MCBCNRT tested to confirm that the river was, in fact, moving. The team had one unpaid intern float on a raft down the Stillwater, while another intern was bound by a pallet of bricks as a control group. While both interns perished during the experiment, the insights gained by our team are invaluable.
