San Lorenzo, CA — This free community event will offer a first-hand look at the Oro Loma/Castro Valley water pollution control facility, along with fun educational activities for all ages. Come learn about how Oro Loma helps protect public health and the environment.

General Manager Jason Warner says, “The May 11th Open House is an excellent opportunity to learn about our services and meet our dedicated staff. We often highlight how well we are maintaining the pumps, pipes, and equipment. The event will allow our customers to see this first-hand and learn about new innovations at our facility. This event will also help introduce young people to great career opportunities serving the local community and San Francisco Bay.  It will be a fun and informative day for everyone.”


Visitors can take guided small bus tours to see how the District’s  water pollution control facility works. Kids and adults can test their recycling skills, see a robotic sewer inspection camera, try a remote-controlled toy forklift, and get a closer look at a Waste Management truck. A photo booth adds even more fun to the day’s activities.
