Sewer Science
5-day Classroom Laboratory for High School

The Sewer Science program is a five 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 Central San.

This program is free to teachers in the Central San’s Sewer Service Area. For more information or to sign-up your class, take a look at the Sewer Science Brochure or contact Ben Lavender at
