C3WlogoThe Greater Toledo Lake Erie Clear Choices Clean Water campaign lets individuals play an active role in improving water quality in our region. The goal of this campaign is to increase community awareness of water quality issues and encourage actions that can address those issues. The interactive website allows users to take pledges in five program areas: Volunteer Service, Native Plants, Super Kids, Lawn Fertilizer, and Pet Waste. Visit the website at This campaign helps promote community and individual stewardship to enhance aesthetics and habitat within the Maumee AOC through simple, everyday choices. The MAAC is supporting the campaign by providing funding from a Supplemental Environmental Project fund that received financial contributions in lieu of fines & penalties from companies for past pollution issues within the AOC. PCS also distributes educational materials, programs, and provides staff support to help grow the campaign’s visibility.

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.
