A New Water Resource for the Santa Barbara Region
15 years ago, Heal the Ocean began with the “Impossible Dream” of removing all wastewater from the ocean.
A severe drought has hit California – not a good thing!
But in this drought HTO is telling you, the public, that wastewater is really “waste(d)water”!
HTO has Trademarked this term – meaning we are emphasizing that we must stop dumping waste(d)water supplies into the ocean!
Please check out and share our just released Waste(d)water Infographic on this issue!
A $687.4 million drought-relief package has been proposed by the State of California and HTO will be hard at work getting as much of this money as we can for Santa Barbara South Coast water recycling projects.

The minute the holidays were over, Heal the Ocean was fast at work with meetings with the Santa Barbara County Water Agency to figure out how to resubmit a $3 million grant application to the Proposition 84 Round III Integrated Regional Management (IRWM) process for the City of Santa Barbara’s upgrade of its recycled water plant to microfiltration.
