The Maumee AOC Advisory Committee (MAAC) is a committee of specialists, academics, and citizens from an array of Northwest Ohio organizations, that assess sites for restoration or remediation, advise Ohio EPA and other agencies and work together to restore the Maumee Area of Concern. Partners for Clean Streams is proud to help facilitate the MAAC and to address the aesthetics impairment with the removal of marine debris from our rivers. This video encapsulates the work of an astonishing network of organizations determined to make the Maumee Area of Concern delisted and fishable and swimmable. View the progress here:
