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.

Then, you are just the person we are looking for to help monitor NW Ohio’s rivers and streams. The Water Sentinel Program requires a few hours of training with Sierra Club staff and a couple hours of your time with the water courses you love, four times a year. We have sites already in mind if you want to be assigned to a place or you can pick your own favorite spot.
The Clean Water Campaign will provide easy-to-use water kits to all participants and staff will help you along the way until you are comfortable in your new water stewardship shoes.
Give your time to help make a difference in assuring the water running through your backyards, your parks, and your communities is healthy.
Sierra Club staff are hoping to train at least 15 volunteers in July to get this program off to a great summer. If you are interested, please contact Ann Keefe at 419-619-4436 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
