Ohio is enriched by its vast water resources, flowing from Lake Erie all the way to the Ohio River. The health and condition of Ohio’s waterways impact our quality of life, as we rely on them for safe drinking water, wildlife habitat, consumable fish, recreation, and shipping. Challenges stem from polluting industries, agricultural and stormwater runoff, urban development, sewer overflows, and more.
Local active groups have community based campaigns that advocates for solutions to prevent waterway pollution – working to protect our rivers, streams, tributaries, and wetlands across the state. We have three programs for volunteers to take action, raise awareness, and advocate for clean waterways in thier communities. For more information get involved with your local group!
