New Ohio Wetland Protection Opportunities Surface

New Ohio Wetland Protection Opportunities Surface

In the coming year, there are several exciting opportunities regarding Ohio’s wetland regulations. They include: the establishment of an electronic clearinghouse for wetland mitigation information, a review of Clean Water Act policy on wetland permit applications by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA), and a new version of Ohio’s biocriteria for categorizing wetlands. Grassroots groups can lend their voice and ideas to the shape of these state policies, and can work together to continue to improve our ability to fight locally to protect and restore wetlands.
