About Ohio's State Coordinating Committee on Ground Water
Ohio’s State Coordinating Committee on Ground Water (Ohio SCCGW) was created in 1992, to promote and guide the implementation of a statewide coordinated, comprehensive and effective ground water protection and management program. Ohio's SCCGW is a subcommittee of the Ohio Water Resources Council, and is composed of ground water technical or management staff from seven state agencies, two federal agencies, and The Ohio State University Extension office. Ohio SCCGW bi-monthly meetings are open to the public, and meeting summaries are distributed to a large group of stakeholders. Ohio EPA Division of Drinking and Ground Waters is the designated information officer for the committee.
SCCGW's mission is to promote and guide the implementation of a coordinated, comprehensive and effective ground water protection and management program for the State of Ohio.
SCCGW's current Chairman is Jim Raab, with the ODNR Division of Soil and Water Resources.
- The next meeting will be held on December 20th (Friday) at Der Dutchman Restaurant, 445 South Jefferson Avenue in Plain City, beginning at 8:30 AM. Lindsay Taliaferro will present on Ohio's process for ground water monitoring at construction and demolition debris landfills.
