WHAT: Environment Ohio will release a new report documenting the total amount of toxic chemicals released by industrial facilities into Ohio’s rivers, lakes, and streams, as ranked by waterway, watershed, type of pollution, polluter, and state.
Environment Ohio’s report will also document the total figures for direct releases of chemicals that cause cancer, reproductive, and developmental harm. Environment Ohio’s report comes as the Clean Water Act turns 40, and as the Obama administration is on the cusp of finalizing new guidelines to restore Clean Water Act protections to many of Ohio’s waterways, and waterways across the country.
