Watershed Coalition to discuss water quality
The Ohio News-Messenger
04/22/03



The Sandusky River Watershed Coalition will have its next quarterly public meeting 7 p.m. Thursday at the Nature Center at Lowe-Volk Park, located on Ohio 598 in Crawford County near Leesville. The meeting is open to anyone interested in the Sandusky County Watershed Area.

There will be a presentation on the Upper Sandusky Watershed Water Quality update. Other business scheduled to be addressed includes recruiting a Hardin/Marion County representative for the coalition's steering committee; recommendations from the incorporation Committee that was established at the winter meeting to look into making the watershed coalition an independent entity; discussion about a strategy for watershed planning on a sub watershed scale; and a review of a proposal WSOS Community Action Commission Inc., the administering entity of the coalition, is submitting on behalf of the wastewater committee. If successful, this proposal will allow for reducing nutrients and bacteria originating from household sewage treatment systems by providing cost share for upgrades and replacements.

The watershed coalition was established to provide education and information to residents of the watershed area so that they can understand how they can participate in maintaining good water quality of the Sandusky River and its watershed. Through resource inventories, stream monitoring and other projects, the coalition has worked on identifying and prioritizing areas of concern. The coalition is part of the Great Lakes Rural Community Assistance Program, a seven-state network of agencies dedicated to providing drinking and wastewater services to small, rural communities. The program is administered by WSOS Community Action Commission Inc.
