Water Alert Reporting Network Introduced to Carroll County
WARN helps Ohioans record and report suspected incidents of pollution or misconduct that could potentially harm our natural environment. The program’s goal is to ensure that state regulators are aware of incidents of concern and that they address the incidents in a timely and appropriate manner.
Elissa Yoder, explains the need for public participation in the Water Alert Reporting Network. "Unfortunately, the Ohio EPA and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources do not have the capacity to monitor all of Ohio’s 199,000 miles of rivers and streams. Luckily, there are many folks willing to keep a watchful eye over our waterways."
The meeting will be held at the Church of Christ – Christian Disciples 353 Moody Ave. Carrollton beginning at 7pm and is free and open to the public.
