Ohio EPA Announces First-Year H2Ohio Accomplishments to Improve Water Quality in Ohio

Ohio EPA this week outlined its progress under the agency’s H2Ohio initiative, which aims to improve the health of Ohio’s lakes and waterways, including Lake Erie.

Launched by Gov. Mike DeWine in November 2019, H2Ohio is a comprehensive water quality plan to reduce harmful algal blooms, improve wastewater infrastructure, and address lead contamination. The initiative was funded with $172 million from the General Assembly over the current biennium. 12/22/2020
