Protecting Ohio’s water quality is part of an initiative introduced by Gov. Mike DeWine. The H2Ohio water quality plan is part of his proposed budget for the 2020-21 biennium.
The H2Ohio fund would be used for water programs across the state, including Lake Erie and other rivers, lakes and waterways. The fund addresses challenges such as algae blooms, failing septic tanks, nutrient pollution and threats from lead.
DeWine is proposing a $900 million budget to protect Ohio’s water quality over 10 years. The Ohio 100 applauds the governor’s efforts to ensure safe and clean water in the Buckeye State.
