New Ohio EPA Director Will Focus on H2Ohio Expansion

Anne Vogel, the new Ohio EPA director, has told news media that the expansion of H2Ohio — Gov. Mike DeWine’s clean water initiative — will be a priority as she begins her leadership at the agency. The governor’s new budget recommends $31.35 million per year for OEPA to expand H2Ohio.

Vogel told Gongwer News Service she also wants Ohio to be ready to capture a share of the U.S. EPA’s “historic $370 billion infusion for climate change mitigation efforts,” authorized by the Inflation Reduction Act. 2/6/2023
