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’s Water Sentinel program works to expose fracking
November 30th, 2011
In Youngstown Ohio, on Saturday Nov. 26, the Ohio Clean Water Campaign trained local citizens to become water sentinels. Water sentinels work together to share data, information, and protect our water at the source. Check out the excellent story about how citizen scientist are raising fracking awareness.
At the training individuals concerned about fracking learned how to use water monitoring equipment to detect changes in their water quality. Participants received free water monitoring kits ($100 value) that measure salinity, total dissolved solids, and conductivity.
If you are interested in fracking and water monitoring, please join us at a water sentinel training in your area! If you don’t see your area listed, please contact us at email@example.com to schedule a training near you.
