Ohio EPA does not allow web look up of pollution permits

The text above is a screen grab from the Ohio EPA website.    

Funny, more than a decade after the internet has been adopted, the Ohio EPA still requires a written/mailed public records request in order for the public to obtain the permit record of existing pollution permit holders.

What this intentional "inconvenience" non-access means is that the OHIO EPA actually protects polluters from the public eye. The very agency that pays public salaries to its employees for the purported purpose of providing/protecting a healthy environment to the taxpaying citizens instead ACTUALLY facilitates the polluters!

Great system OHIO!  

The message to OHIO citizens is clearly: Protect your health and your families health - KEEP LEAVING THE POLLUTED STATE OF OHIO!
