Ever wonder what happens to water when it goes down the drain? The Central Contra Costa Sanitary District Citizens Academy will provide a behind-the-scenes look at one of your community’s core services, the wastewater industry. It will also focus on what Central San does to protect the environment, including providing recycled water to its residents and operating its household hazardous waste facility, where residents can drop off used paint and other chemicals.
As a participant in the Citizens Academy, you will learn how Central San uses engineering, chemistry and technology to turn waste into worth, by cleaning our community’s water and returning it to our customers as recycled water. You will also be able to tour our treatment plant, laboratory, recycled water fill station, and household hazardous waste collection facility.
This FREE six-week course is a rare glimpse into how used water gains new life. Join us for our first-ever semester this spring to find out more about the other side of water!
