Protect the Ohio River

KWA continues to be concerned that the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) will soon vote to dissolve its standards that protect the Ohio River. It is our belief that removing the standards will lead to increased water pollution and negatively affect our drinking water and recreational opportunities.


If you are concerned about the water quality of the Ohio River, we urge you to contact the commission to voice your opinion against dissolving its standards  The comment period has been extended until August 20 (it was originally August 10) so now is the time to act.


Comments can be submitted two ways: via traditional mail and via email.


Mailed comments should be addressed to: ORSANCO, 5735 Kellogg Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45230, Attn: PCS Comments.


Emailed comments should be sent to:
