Lake Erie Starts Here is a project of the Northeast Ohio Public Involvement Public Education (NEO PIPE) work group. 
NEO PIPE work group is a regional consortium of Soil and Water Conservation Districts, conservation organizations and other government agencies committed to improving water quality in Northeast Ohio.  Since 2002, NEO PIPE has been collaborating to effectively develop and provide regional resources to increase public awareness of stormwater issues and opportunities to protect our shared waters.
NEO PIPE represents dozens of communities in 10 contiguous counties and covers several major watersheds listed below:
  • Black River
  • Chagrin River
  • Cuyahoga River
  • Rocky River
  • Euclid Creek 
  • Portions of the Grand, Tuscarawas, and Mahoning Rivers
NEO PIPE creates a unified message by collaborating across political boundaries, helping its communities meet the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program requirements and leveraging government funds and local resources more efficiently.
To reach any members of the NEO PIPE workgroup, please visit their webpage. Thank you.
