H2Ohio is Governor Mike DeWine’s initiative to ensure safe and clean water for all Ohioans. It is a comprehensive, data-driven approach to improving water quality over the long term.
H2Ohio focuses specifically on reducing phosphorus, creating wetlands, addressing failing septic systems and preventing lead contamination.
The Governor, his team, the Ohio Department of Agriculture, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, the Lake Erie Commission and many interested parties, including the Ohio Agriculture Conservation Initiative (OACI), and partners in conservation have worked together to invest in projects across Ohio that aim to reduce nutrients and provide long-term economic and water quality benefits to communities statewide.
H2Ohio enrollment is open for new producers, and for existing participants wishing to add practices and acres from September 15, 2021 until January 14, 2022.
