Ohio Nutrient Forum – Visioning Workshop

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is holding a Visioning Workshop on November 14, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Columbus, Ohio. The main objectives of the workshop are as follows:

  • Gather ideas, opinions, and feedback from key stakeholders
  • Convey basic information on current water quality conditions
  • Inform all interest groups of what is being done to reduce nutrient loadings in Ohio’s waterways
  • Show that the current state of nutrient issues in Ohio requires new and innovative approaches
  • Establish the Nutrient Strategy Framework and the Ohio Nutrient Forum as a way to work together to tackle the problem

During this workshop, water quality experts will provide valuable information regarding Ohio’s efforts to reduce nutrients reaching the state’s waterways. Ongoing State initiatives that will be discussed include the Lake Erie Phosphorus Task Force, the Directors’ Agricultural Nutrients and Water Quality Working Group, and the Directors’ Point Source/Urban Work Group. Additionally, stakeholders will be invited to pose questions, express concerns, and provide input on Ohio’s current and future nutrient reduction programs and initiatives.

Stakeholders from all sectors and regions are encouraged to attend this initial Visioning Workshop, which will set the stage for future Ohio Nutrient Forums.
