MAAC Member Openings

MAAC LogoAt this time, the MAAC is seeking applications for committee membership for 2020 - 2021. Multiple voting member positions are currently open, and there is no limit to the number of new Non-voting (resource) member seats. Voting members serve for two year terms, while non-voting members are appointed each year based on expressed interest. This year, we are especially interested in adding more community members to the MAAC; please consider!

Voting Member applications are available at maumeeaoc.org for those interested in joining the MAAC. The application deadline is Sunday, December 15th, 2019. Non-Voting Members do NOT need to complete the application. They only need to send an email to Cherie Blair (Ohio EPA) or Kris Patterson (Partners for Clean Streams) indicating their interest and for which level of involvement (Ex-Officio and Resource members). The time and your ability to represent your respective agency should be approved within your agency per your own internal process. 

We want to make sure the Maumee AOC has a strong and representative voice in the AOC process and encourage all interested individuals to apply. The members of the MAAC will play an important role in defining the future course of the activities in the AOC. Some of the key activities for 2020 include:

  • Work with Ohio EPA to determine any BUIs that can be removed;
  • Continue to evaluate conditions and needs utilizing recently collected data;
  • Continue to develop strategically located projects that will lead most directly to BUI removal;
  • Continue development of final management action projects (MAPs) list for all remaining BUIs.

We invite you and your agency to be involved in improving the Maumee AOC as either a Voting, Ex-officio or Resource Member of the MAAC. As you consider this, please see the details regarding each of these positions here.

Thank you for considering this opportunity. We look forward to hearing from you by December 15th!

The Maumee AOC Committee works toward fishable and swimmable waters in the Maumee Area of Concern and delisting the beneficial use impairments. The Committee is working towards all major restoration projects being completed by 2025, through collaboration of partners and volunteer opportunities by its facilitating organization, Partners for Clean Streams. The committee is made up of representatives from various organizations, citizens, businesses and non-government agencies to build long term solutions to the area’s water quality issues.
