World Water Day - Wastewater Treatment

On World Water Day here in Hayward we celebrate the heroes who work around the clock to ensure that our wastewater is treated to the highest standards. All of our wastewater eventually ends up in the bay.

This year the United Nation's World Water Day is focused on the connection between water and jobs. According to the UN, "Today, almost half of the world's workers - 1.5 billion people - work in water related sectors and nearly all jobs depend on water and those that ensure its safe delivery."

At the Wastewater Treatment Facility, Hayward employees take pride in treating the wastewater to levels that well exceed the State standards, doing their part to keep the SF Bay healthy to enjoy, live, and cherish for generations to come. 

In 2015 the hard work resulted by being awarded California Water Environment Association Plant of the Year, SF Bay Section award. See some of the amazing work that is done at your Facility:
