SRWC Moving October 1st

The flow of life has taken the Sandusky River Watershed Coalition around another turn.  Starting October 1, 2017, administration of the organization will be moved from WSOS Community Action Commission, Inc. to the National Center for Water Quality Research at Heidelberg University. While the face of the watershed coordinator and business practices may look a little different, the grassroots structure, mission, and purpose will all remain the same.  We look to you for continued support to allow us to grow and increase our efforts of education and outreach about water quality improvement throughout the watershed.  Thank you to WSOS Community Action Commission, Inc. for 18 years of administrative support.  And a special thanks to Cindy Brookes for her 11 years providing leadership to the organization.
