Stormwater Management

Clear Choices / Clean Water

Clear Choices, Clean Water – Greater Toledo Lake Erie is a campaign to increase awareness about choices we make and the impact we have on our streams and lakes. Water friendly practices such as using phosphorus-free fertilizer, landscaping with native plants, managing yard and pet wastes, and volunteering to clean up our waterways help make clear clean water available to us. Even small actions can have a big impact on our waterways.

Lake Erie Starts Here

The water in Lake Erie starts in everyone’s neighborhood throughout our region; stormwater in northwest Ohio drains to our streams and rivers, and ultimately to Lake Erie. Doing your part to keep pollution off the land and out of storm drains helps to keep the pollution out of Lake Erie, too.
