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.
- Know Your Well Water: Test, Understand, Protect - Wondering if your well water is safe? A good first step is to have your water tested at a certified lab, but lab test results are not always easy to interpret. That's why the OSU Extension has created a website to help drinking water well owners understand their lab test results. You will also find information on well maintenance, what to do if your well water is contaminated and who to contact for assistance.
- The 2014 meeting schedule is available on the meeting summary page.
- The next meeting will be held on April 17th at the ODNR Assembly Center East.
