CUYAHOGA RIVER REMEDIAL ACTION PLAN
CUYAHOGA AMERICAN HERITAGE RIVER
CUYAHOGA RELEAF

THE CUYAHOGA RIVER is one of only fourteen rivers designated as American Heritage Rivers due to their cultural, environmental and economic importance in their regions. The initiative is an innovative response to help river communities that seek federal assistance and other resources to meet some tough challenges. Without any new regulations on private property owners, state, local and tribal governments, the American Heritage Rivers initiative is about making more efficient and effective use of existing federal resources, cutting red-tape, and lending a helping hand.

The Cuyahoga American Heritage River initiative encompasses the entire Cuyahoga River watershed, bringing together government agencies, businesses and community partners from six counties.

The CRCPO is the lead AHR partner, working with NOACA, NEFCO, Ohio & Erie Canalway, and Upper Cuyahoga River Task Force. Jim White, CRCPO's Executive Director, has been named River Navigator, to act as the principle resource, and point of contact and funding.

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

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