What You Can Do
The Omega Center for Sustainable Living (OCSL) is committed to fostering a healthy and hopeful relationship with water for all. In 2009, we built an Eco Machine™, a natural water reclamation facility, to purify the water used on our campus. We continue to grow collaborative relationships with many local organizations working to clean and protect water in our region.
Learn more and help by signing petitions, writing your local government officials, and commenting on proposed plans. Adding your voice matters.
