Action Alert with Ohio Sierra Club

The Great Lakes Compact has the potential to safeguard our water supply and foster healthy, sustainable and vibrant communities for centuries to come.

The Compact requires states to set thresholds or withdrawal limits on the amount of water individuals and companies can take from the Lake Erie Watershed.

HB 473 threatens our water supply by allowing industry to withdraw over 89 million gallons in a single day, leaves our highest quality rivers unprotected, and limits public participation in the permitting process.

Please tell the Ohio Legislature not to drain the lake and vote no on HB 473.
