Ohio DNR wants to clear-cut and burn it’s way through Ohio’s natural forests. Take action
The Great Lakes are a national treasure, and economically support a $7 billion fishing industry, $16 billion boating industry, and 1.5 million jobs. The introduction of Asian carp and other species puts the well-being of our communities, wildlife, and waters at risk.
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.
