Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
Fish Kills Troublesome at Bayshore Coal Plant!
December 22nd, 2010
A coalition of local and national conservation groups has filed a legal challenge to recently issued Ohio EPA permits allowing FirstEnergy’s antiquated Bayshore coal plant to continue destroying millions of Lake Erie’s fish rather than install modern equipment. Bayshore sits in Lake Erie’s Maumee Bay, one of the most important spawning grounds and fisheries in the world supporting a $1.4 billion annual commercial and recreational fishing economy.Bayshore statistics show that the plant kills more than 14 million juvenile fish and more than 2 billion fish in their larval form when they pass through the water intake screens and through equipment inside the power plant (called entrainment).
