Welcome to Recr8OhioRiver!

The Ohio River - our region’s most valuable natural asset - stretches 981 miles from Pennsylvania to the mouth of the Mississippi in Illinois. The river is a source of drinking water, transportation and recreation.

The Ohio River has consistently become cleaner and healthier over the past 40 years, due to efforts to reduce pollution. The river is safe for recreation about 90% of the time during dry weather.

The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) and its partners, Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky (SD1) and the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO), are committed to improving water quality in the Ohio River and promoting it as a natural and economic asset.

The group has developed the Recr8OhioRiver website and an app to provide Ohio River water quality information and river conditions in the Greater Cincinnati area (from the Meldahl to Markland Locks and Dam) to recreational users and others as they are planning to boat, fish, swim or engage in other water sports.

Recr8OhioRiver can help you make informed decisions about where and when to recreate on the Ohio River. Recreational users always recreate at their own risk.
