Our water environment is a precious resource, and Central San is in the business of protecting it. Our efforts to spread the word about preventing pollution have led to several education programs for grades K-12. Some have been developed by in-house staff, others represent cooperative efforts with nonprofit or other government agencies.
If you are interested in a more in-depth view of these programs, please contact Ben Lavender at email@example.com or (925) 335-7723.
Central San’s education programs are designed to help students understand “what happens to our dirty water after it goes down the drain.”

Central San Academy
Join us as we welcome you into our world of wastewater, environmental protection, and more!
Ever wonder what happens to water when it goes down the drain? The Central San Citizens Academy (Central San Academy) provides an award-winning, behind-the-scenes look at one of your community’s core services: wastewater treatment.
Our program is offered in the Bay Area through a Community College and includes a scholarship for every student who maintains a grade of C in each course. The scholarship covers tuition and books for those seeking a career in the Clean Water industry. Our program includes a Plant Operator Certificate after completing the required 28 units.
Today’s gardeners, homeowners, and pet-lovers are looking for ways to manage pest problems with little or no use of toxic materials. Many are relying on a strategy called Integrated Pest Management or IPM.
IPM allows us to look at and deal with pest problems in a new way that can ultimately lead to longer lasting suppression of pests while using fewer harmful chemicals. This is accomplished without sacrificing comfort in the home or beauty and productivity in the garden.
Flush your public speaking fears! For more than 30 years, Central San has sponsored Talksics Toastmasters, a club open to both Central San employees and community members. Toastmasters is a long-standing leader in developing people at all levels to grow their communication and leadership skills. The Club meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month from 12:00 p.m.
