Urban Waters Partnership

Accomplishments for Western Lake Erie Basin Location


Community Planning and Outreach

WLEB organized several community events, including: stream clean-ups and rain barrel construction workshops. As harmful algal blooms (HABs) continue to be a concern for WLEB partners, the Partnership is developing nine-element approved watershed management plans, and a coordinated outreach strategy about Lake Erie waters.

Partnership Meetings

The Western Lake Eerie Basin (WLEB) Partnership held eight partnership meetings since the first one held in 2013. Meetings have been held in the Toledo OH area, and one was held in an upstream community in conjunction with a River Summit held in Ft. Wayne, IN in April 2015. The most recent partnership meeting was held on October 20, 2015 in Toledo.
