As the Areawide planning agency for Northeast Ohio, the NOACA is responsible for producing and updating the 208 Water Quality Plan. The agency is currently seeking comments on its latest update, Clean Water 2020. The plan can be found on the public comments page on NOACA’s website at the following link through July 20, 2020:
