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.

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