Keeping Our Environments Safe

The Oregon Youth Authority wants to make sure the buildings in our facilities are safe for everyone who uses them.

We monitor, test, and have plans for dealing with several potential environmental issues in our facilities.
Drinking Water
Some materials used to construct buildings at some of OYA's facilities contain asbestos. Learn which facilities, and about how we have safely managed these materials, by reading our fact sheet on asbestos.
