Co-Founded by Bone/Levine Architect's partner Joe Levine, Damascus Citizens for Sustainability is a non-profit 501c3 grass roots organization formed in response to the threat of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) planned for the Upper Delaware River Basin. The organization's goal is to preserve and protect clean air, land and water as a basic human right in the face of this threat. A combination of public education and advocacy related to environmental and health impacts, has been the primary campaign of DCS. Based in the heart of the Upper Delaware the organization's work has been significant to the nationwide efforts to ban fracking.
