Organizations Working To Improve Water Quality
The Upper Maumee Watershed Partnership (UMWP) is a locally-led group of concerned citizens and organizations whose primary goal is the improvement of water quality throughout the Upper Maumee River Watershed and the Western Lake Erie Basin. The group works to protect and restore the watershed through public education and planning, with the goal of improving water quality, increasing habitat quality, promoting sustainable land use practices and providing recreational opportunities.
The Upper Maumee Watershed is comprised of four counties including Defiance and Paulding in Ohio and Allen and DeKalb in Indiana. The Maumee River originates in Fort Wayne and flows northeasterly through the City of Defiance, on to Toledo and eventually into Lake Erie.
