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.
In June 2014, Governor Kasich signed into law a bill that guts Ohio’s clean energy and efficiency standards. Passing this new law was not enough for Ohio’s utilities, though.
Now, Ohio’s largest electric utilities, AEP, Duke, and FirstEnergy are seeking to keep a number of Ohio’s oldest and dirtiest power plants open for years to come.
And they want you and me to pay for it.
Ohio Water Sentinel Program
April 21st, 2011
The Ohio Water Sentinel Program seeks to educate, engage, and empower volunteers to restore, improve and protect Ohio’s waterways.
Thanks to the generous support of Aveda salons, institutes, and retail experience centers, the Ohio Chapter has engaged thousands of volunteers and trained more than two hundred citizen scientists to monitor our waterways for pollution.
The Clean Water Act requires states to test their waterways regularly. Unfortunately, the Ohio EPA and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources do not have the capacity to monitor all of Ohio’s 199,000 miles of rivers and streams as well as underground aquifers. Thus it is critical for citizen scientists to record the quality of our water and keep a watchful eye. The Water Sentinel Program provides water monitoring kits, training, and sample analysis to participating groups and individuals who care about clean water.
If you or your organization would like to participate in the Water Sentinel Program or want to learn more about what we do, contact the Clean Water Campaign today.
