NEFCO Clean Water Plan - 208 Water Quality Management Plan
NEFCO General Policy Board Approves Update
December 21, 2011

The Northeast Ohio Four County Regional Planning and Development Organization (NEFCO) was designated by the Governor of Ohio under Section 208 of the federal Clean Water Act to perform areawide planning. Together with local public officials throughout the region, NEFCO has formulated an update of the 208 Plans for the Ohio River and Lake Erie Basins which addresses both municipal wastewater treatment issues and nonpoint source pollution management and control. NEFCO values the input provided by the public in the preparation of these plans.

 

The first 208 plan for the NEFCO region was completed in 1979.  This plan focused considerable attention on public investments in wastewater treatment facilities and point source water pollution.  These efforts produced a remarkable recovery in the region’s water quality.  Today, the prime concerns are threats to water quality from nonpoint source pollutants and storm water runoff.  These threats come from a variety of potential sources, including nonpoint discharges from residential and commercial developments.

The latest version of the Clean Water Plan combines the Lake Erie Basin and Ohio River Basin Plans from the 2003 and 2005 updates into a single document reducing redundant information and making it an easier document to use. This work includes updates to all information and maps for the wastewater facilities planning areas. The Plan update also reviewed the issues relevant to protecting and restoring water resources in the NEFCO region including nonpoint source pollution, stormwater runoff, protection of regionally important water resources, and watershed planning.

 

The document underwent public review, was recommended for approval by NEFCO Environmental Resources Technical Advisory Committee (ERTAC) on December 7, 2011, and approved by the NEFCO General Policy Board on December 21, 2011. Amendments to the 208 Plan are listed below with the dates with they were approved by the NEFCO Board.
