At ALCOSAN, we're not just treating wastewater – we're also dedicated to spreading knowledge and promoting sustainability. That's why we're committed to developing innovative and creative programs that encourage students, professionals, and communities to learn more about our wastewater treatment process.
ALCOSAN will celebrate National Engineers Week February 20 to March 1, 2024, with outreach and programming for students in grades Pre-K to 8 who reside in our service area.
This is a perfect time to recognize engineers and allow students to explore the design process through a designated STEM activity.
