Sewer District’s Regional Stormwater Management Program Gets Green Light from Ohio Supreme Court
Columbus (September 15, 2015) – Today, the Ohio Supreme Court agreed with an Amicus Curiae brief filed by the Coalition of Ohio Regional Districts (CORD) and ruled in favor of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District’s appeal concerning the Regional Stormwater Management Program.
Welcome to C.O.R.D.
Welcome to the home of the Coalition of Ohio Regional Districts (CORD). CORD is a non-profit association established to assist, protect and advance the interests of Ohio's Regional Water and Sewer Districts, also known as "6119 districts".
CORD was established for three primary reasons. The first is to encourage legislation favorable districts. Every year, Bills are introduced into the Ohio General Assembly which have negative consequences for regional districts. CORD will seek to modify or defeat such legislation. Conversely, CORD will seek to implement legislation advantageous to districts and their customers. such as our amendment of O.R.C 505.705, which clarified the ability of Townships to contribute money toward planning and constructing district water, sewer and storm water projects.
The first Shared Services for Water and Sewer Seminar is right around the corner. the program is presented by the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG) with members of the Small Community Environmental Infrastructure Group (SCEIG). Attorney Eric Luckage from Albers and Albers will be speaking on Shared Water and Sewer Services: Ohio Revised Code and Contract.
