Committees

Drinking Water Subcommittee

The purpose of the Drinking Water subcommittee is to disseminate drinking water system/provider information for emergency purposes and provide education and outreach on topics such as Ohio EPA rules and regulations and harmful algal blooms (HABs). Under the guidance of the Ohio EPA, Eastgate will facilitate conversations with our region’s officials, treatment plant operators, and citizens to ensure our region’s drinking water sources are accounted for and meeting state standards and meeting the needs of our communities.
