Central Contra Costa Sanitary District (Central San) is celebrating 75 years of protecting public health and the environment with the launch of its 75th Anniversary Experience: centralsan.org/75th

The virtual experience features an interactive 360-degree tour of Central San’s treatment plant and other facilities, videos, photo galleries, historical facts, drone flyovers, and a learning hub with hands-on science activities for kids. Customers can also find information on how to protect their pipes, safely dispose of household hazardous waste, and get free recycled water for their gardens. They can even find hidden surprises and prizes!

Central San began preparing for its anniversary celebration amid the pandemic, which made it too challenging to plan a big public event. The 75th Anniversary Experience provides a creative solution by allowing customers to engage with and learn more about Central San throughout its anniversary year and beyond.


The Community Engagement & Outreach Program of the Year recognizes significant achievements in promoting awareness and understanding of water quality issues. There are three categories – small, medium and large.
