Ohio wetlands protection

Wetlands are precious resources that act as nature's kidneys to filter and protect our drinking water. They are sponges which absorb damaging flood waters and slowly release them.

The Ohio EPA is proposing changes to the way permits to fill and alter wetlands and streams are decided. Public comments can have a major impact in ensuring that we have strong environmental protections for another five years.

Ohio Environmental Council wants people to write letters to help protect wetlands and streams by sending a letter today.
