Resources for students, residents, and businesses.


Our water environment is a precious resource, and CCCSD is in the business of protecting it. Our efforts to spread the word about preventing pollution have led to several education programs for grades 3 through 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 call our Public Information Hotline at (925) 335-7702.
