The Ohio River needs monitoring & protection

Comment Period for Pollution Control Standards for the Ohio River

ACTION ALERT from the West Virginia Rivers Coalition, February 20, 2018

The Ohio River serves as a 256-mile border between West Virginia and Ohio. In this photo, the left bank is Chesapeake, Ohio and the right bank is Huntington, West Virginia.

The mighty Ohio River is in danger and the drinking water for millions of people who depend on it is at risk. The commission in charge of the river’s pollution limits is considering abandoning their responsibility by rolling back pollution control standards during their triennial review process.

Act Now: Contact the Ohio River commissioners, tell them you want strong and protective pollution control standards for the Ohio River.

The Ohio River already tops the list of the nation’s most polluted waterways. Don’t let the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO), the commission charged overseeing the Ohio’s water quality, rollback critical protections!

Contact ORSANCO by Saturday, February 24, and tell them to say NO to eliminating pollution control standards for the Ohio River!
