E-Learning

The City of Omaha’s Clean Solutions for Omaha (CSO) Program has consolidated youth outreach materials for use by teachers, parents and students wanting to learn more about our efforts to improve water quality in our river and streams. These educational materials about stormwater and its impact on communities will help students better understand the need for conservation and keeping harmful materials out of our sewers.
