Sewer Science

Sewer Science logoThe Sewer Science program is a 5 day wastewater treatment lab for high school students. Developed with the aid of a science teacher, this hands-on lab lets students make, treat, and test wastewater. Developed specifically to meet the needs of grades 9-12, the curriculum integrates chemistry, physics, and microbiology. Almost all the materials required for running the lab - including the necessary tanks, pumps, testing kits, and perishable materials - are provided by CCCSD.

This program is free to teachers in the CCCSD’s Sewer Service Area. For more information or to sign-up your class, call Central San's Community Affairs Representative, Chris Carpenter at (925) 229-7316.
