Columbus, Ohio -- The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to Heather Taylor-Miesle, President of the Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund:
“Lake Erie is not only a source of water for millions of people, but it provides more than $14 billion in economic benefits for Ohio. It’s future couldn’t be more important.
“The H2Ohio Initiative is a prime example of the bold thinking needed to set Lake Erie back on track. I commend Governor DeWine for this proposal, and encourage folks from both sides of the aisle to work together on solutions that will result in a healthier Lake Erie and safer drinking water for families.
“We look forward to working with the administration on these efforts, and hope to provide a healthy lake for generations of Ohioans to come.”
