Water is Advantage
Economic growth is water dependent, and compared to other states and nations, Ohio is water rich. Ohio’s industries are driven by an abundant supply of fresh water from Lake Erie, Ohio’s rivers, and a robust system of underground aquifers.
While drought and pollution blight other regions of the United States and the globe, Ohio has a plentiful supply of water for industry, irrigation, consumption, and recreation.
Water is our advantage — and our goal is to protect it.
