DeWine Announces $900M Water Quality Initiative

When in Toledo this week, Governor Mike DeWine announced a new water quality initiative, H2Ohio. The initiative will be included in his proposed state budget which is expected to be unveiled today.

DeWine said the new initiative could provide funding of as much as $900 million over ten years to protect Ohio’s water quality.

Investments would be made in programs affecting state waters including Lake Erie and other rivers, lakes, and waterways. Efforts could include pollution prevention, land-based management programs, water-based restoration programs, as well as science, research and measurement. 3/14/2019
