Water Inventory and Planning

We are working to restore information about the Water Withdrawal Program and hope to provide it soon. Thank you for your patience.

The Water Inventory and Planning Program is responsible for implementing and enforcing Ohio’s rules, regulations, and contracts related to water supply and water resource development. This is accomplished by executing and administering contracts for the sale of state-owned water stored in federal, state and local reservoirs; registering large capacity water users; and collecting, compiling and disseminating water use data for water resources development, planning and management. The program is also responsible for water withdrawal and consumptive use permitting, and for implementing the provisions of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact (Great Lakes Compact) and the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Sustainable Water Resources Agreement.
