NEMO was started in Connecticut in 1991-1992 to help coastal Connecticut towns manage nonpoint source pollution while accomodating growth. The program quickly caught on in other states and the National NEMO Network was formed.
In 1999, Ohio NEMO was started by Dr.Timothy Lawrence and Anne Baird, then the Extension Watershed Agent for the Southwest District.
In 2007, Andy Ward became the new Ohio NEMO Program Director. Jessica D'Ambrosio was appointed as Program Manager in 2008. They continue to work closely with Extension educators, Soil and Water Conservation Districts, County Commissioners, County Engineers, and City Officials to find alternative solutions to urban nonpoint source pollution issues.
In 2010, Ohio NEMO joined the newly formed Sustainable Streams, Watersheds, and Water Resources Extension Team at Ohio State University. Team is a collaboration between Extension professionals involved in all facets of water resources to promote and facilitate sustainable stream and watershed stewardship.
