Richard Harrison, Executive Director and Chief Engineer of the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO), recently presented at a virtual meeting of Cincinnati Eastside Rotary. ORSANCO was established more than 70 years ago to control and abate pollution in the Ohio River Basin.

ORSANCO is an interstate commission representing eight states and the federal government. Member states include: Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. 
ORSANCO operates programs to improve water quality in the Ohio River and its tributaries, including: setting waste water discharge standards; performing biological assessments; monitoring for the chemical and physical properties of the waterways; and conducting special surveys and studies.

ORSANCO also coordinates emergency response activities for spills or accidental discharges to the river, and promotes public participation in programs, such as the Ohio River Sweep.
