New group organizes to push water quality
Beacon Journal
Posted on 09/30/2002

The Northeast Ohio Watershed Council, a new grass-roots environmental group interested in rivers, was organized Thursday.

More than 50 individuals from 50 local river groups and a dozen government agencies and park districts were brought together by the Ohio Environmental Council, a statewide eco-group.

The new council is expected to provide ``a political forum where citizen-based groups can form a unified voice on local, regional and statewide water-quality issues,'' said OEC organizer Elizabeth Hoffman.

Similar groups have sprung up around the country and it is a growing trend.
