Cuyahoga River Remedial Action Plan

The Cuyahoga River Remedial Action Plan Coordinating Committee (CCC) prepared the RAP with help from the Cuyahoga River Community Planning Organization. The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency provided planning support for the RAP.

RAP staff conducts technical work; so do work groups associated with specific issues or grant projects.
