Comments accepted on regional water plan  
The Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments will accept comments on the region’s water quality management plan until June 7 at 5 p.m.

The plan, which is required by the Clean Water Act, covers Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, and Wood counties in Ohio; and Bedford, Erie, and Whiteford townships of Monroe County, Mich.

It includes agreements on how jurisdictions will construct and maintain sewer systems and water treatment facilities and how septic systems and sewer problems will be managed.

TMACOG held a meeting last week to offer the public a chance to review planned changes to the planning document, which is updated when communities embark on development projects or when municipalities join together to build a sewer system.

The plan and revisions are posted on the TMACOG website. To comment contact Kurt Erichsen, Vice President of Environmental Planning, at (419) 241-9155, ext. 126.

The updated plan will be presented to the TMACOG Board of Trustees for approval at the board’s June 8 meeting.
