organizes to push water quality

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.
