ORSANCO Makes Standards Voluntary

On June 6, the current standards set by the Ohio River Valley Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) for monitoring water quality in the Ohio River became voluntary. Only two of the commissioners representing eight member states and the federal government voted against the measure.

ORSANCO Hearing (Pittsburgh)

The Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) is considering a proposal that would make its Pollution Control Standards voluntary for states to enforce. There will be three public hearings, where people can make a public comment to be recordered in order to encourage the ORSANCO Commission to keep mandatory standards for the entire Ohio River valley.

Take action to protect ORSANCO and support water justice!

Last year a proposal came forward to do away with the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) regulatory mission.
