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.
The Clean Water Campaign’s Conservation goal is to protect Ohio’s waterways – one stream, one wetland, one drop at a time
Through conservation, we protect the environment for the benefit of humans and non-humans, and achieve conservation victories on local water issues by working directly with Sierra Club members and partner organizations.
Over the past three years, the campaign has delivered over 25,000 comments to local, state, and federal officials related to pollution that plagues Ohio’s water, and has serves as a voice for clean water through more than 50 media hits in print, radio, and television outlets.
We have helped protect the following areas from pollution:
Lake Erie Watershed
- Lake Erie shoreline from sewage and urban pollution
- Carroll County surface and groundwater from Rosebud Mining Company
- The Little Cuyahoga River in Summit County from sewage pollution
- Federal Creek in Athens from coal mining
- Sawmill and Olentangy Wetlands in Columbus from development
- Olentangy, Alum Creek, and Scioto rivers from sewage pollution
- Wesselman Creek from development of sewage lines
- Little Miami River from the Eastern Corridor Highway
- Promoted green infrastructure practices for Mill Creek
- Advocated for the designation of Grand Lake St. Mary’s as a distressed watershed
