Enough Is Enough


compton dirty water

Basketball legend Cedric Ceballos and Fred Martin, Founder of Compton Kidz Club, will join OriginClear CEO Riggs Eckelberry on stage at the 16th AREDAY Summit, in Aspen/Snowmass, Colorado at 9:15am on Saturday, August 17.

About 3000 households in the city of Compton California, are plagued with “disgusting, brown water”, resulting from pipe and well contamination.

The City of Los Angeles is working hard to resolve the issue. To buy the City time, we propose to raise the money to install simple units in each affected household, to deliver the standard tap water level that all consumers rightly expect.

OriginClear is sponsoring the Enough Is Enough™, initially for Compton, and then extending to other cities with major tap water issues, such as Newark, New Jersey.

The campaign intends to emphasize local participation. Households will be given the option to “pay it forward” but will not be required to pay more than their existing water bill.

“Once we have solved this issue in Compton, we want to repeat the process in other cities in California and elsewhere,” said Eckelberry. “While initially a non-profit fundraising initially, we believe that this could evolve into government funding over time.”
