Be part of the solution and ensure clean water for future generations.
Everyone needs access to clean water—our families, our community, and our way of life depend on that. Ohio is facing a significant water quality challenge right now. Over the last 15 years, Lake Erie has seen more frequent harmful algal blooms, which damages Ohio industries and makes drinking water unsafe for millions of Ohioans. Many studies point to runoff of nutrients from both rural and urban areas changing not only the lake, but also the waterways that feed into it. We need to determine the best ways to protect Ohio’s water quality.
