About PCS

Did you know that the Great Lakes are the biggest freshwater source in the world? Lake Erie is the most productive for fishing of all the Great Lakes. Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem. By donating to PCS, you help us reach our goals of restoring rivers that lead to Lake Erie beaches that promote fishable and swimmable conditions for generations.

Born out of the Maumee Remedial Action Plan (RAP) program in 2007, Partners for Clean Streams is dedicated to the health of the streams and rivers of the greater Toledo region and the people who use them. We all rely on these waters for drinking, recreation, commerce, family traditions, and identity of this region. The waterways, and abundance of parks and green space, knits our communities together and draw people to our region; as we are fortunate to be situated on one of the greatest reserves of fresh water in the world, the Great Lakes. As pollution, muddy waters, and trash threatens our water’s health, community traditions, and local economy, we know investing in healthy waters is an investment in our community, health, and future.

We partner directly with citizens, businesses, governmental agencies, and other non-profit organizations to take local ownership in our rivers, streams, and lakes. We connect these organizations and individual partners through educational opportunities, conservation programs, stream clean-ups, and outreach programs to promote our local and regional water in Northwest Ohio. We work with these partners and volunteers to make those waterways clean, clear, and safe. Our organization is made up of a small staff, board members, and many, many volunteers dedicated to caring for our rivers and streams and the land connected to them.
