The Cuyahoga River Community Planning Organization (CRCPO)
is host to the Cuyahoga River Remedial Action Plan (RAP) and
the Cuyahoga American Heritage River Initiative.

These organizations work with partners, stakeholders and communities
in five Northeast Ohio counties, to restore and revitalize the
Cuyahoga River Watershed and Areas Of Concern,
to improve water quality in the watershed and Lake Erie.

Eventually, this site will offer more information on our watersheds, the
tributary groups working in the region, and new prospects for restoration than
you ever dreamed existed. Until then, learn more about our programs by visiting
