Confirming findings of continued improvements to local water quality, U.S. EPA has agreed with Ohio EPA’s 2018 recommendation to ease restrictions on fish consumption in the Cuyahoga River. Any remaining advisories for that segment of stream are now consistent with the state’s general recommendations (updated yearly).
The state made this request based on data from fish tissue sampling which shows significant improvements in the health of fish in the stream. Removing this impairment takes Ohio one step closer to the goal of delisting the Cuyahoga River as an Area of Concern.
