Water Habitat Restoration

PCS has had the privilege of coordinating multiple stream restoration projects in Northwest Ohio. Our staff and volunteers stewarded these projects from initial development, to implementation, to evaluation of success. These habitat restoration projects were funded through a combination of governmental and private foundation grants.

Maumee Area of Concern (AOC)

The Maumee AOC covers 787 square miles of Northwest Ohio on the path to beneficial use impairment removal. Since 2015, PCS has served as the facilitating organization for the Maumee AOC Advisory Committee (MAAC), which works for swimmable, fishable, and drinkable waters within our region.

Community Water Action in Toledo (CWAT)

In 2022, PCS kicked off a multi-agency program that streamlines volunteer water quality monitoring across the western basin of Lake Erie. We connect partner organizations’ water monitoring programs by sharing training resources, engaging in volunteer outreach, aligning sampling protocols, and evaluating success.
