The Ohio Air Quality Development Authority (OAQDA) is a non-regulatory agency created by the Ohio General Assembly in 1970. OAQDA's mission is to provide for the conservation of air as a natural resource of the state by preventing or abating air pollution. They accomplish this by helping finance air quality facilities for small and large businesses, utilities, government and universities.
Created in 2000, the Water Resource Restoration Sponsor Program (WRRSP) uses interest monies from Water Control Pollution Loan Fund (WPCLF) sponsor projects to fund preservation and restoration of high-quality water resources. Throughout Ohio, more than $165 million has been awarded for projects in 30 counties and 69 watersheds.
The City of Oregon’s water treatment plant is a regional public water system serving 29,000 people in several northwestern Ohio communities and counties. Their water intake is in the western basin of Lake Erie. The shallow depth of the basin, combined with factors such as runoff, nutrients, winds, currents and invasive mussels can contribute to algae blooms from June to September of each year. Certain types of algae, in turn, release microcystins that are generally harmful upon contact.
In the spring of 2016, Ohio EPA partnered with the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) and the
