-This thing did not have a lot of impact __ the river.

To after impact is found in the British Corpus, but the problem I have is, this to after impact is very often part of a different structure. The usual word in the above sentence is on, but is to less common or wrong?

Not only is it not less common, and certainly not wrong, i can't imagine a native-speaker using anything other than "on."
