Environmental Leadership in Carpinteria Since 1928

The Carpinteria Sanitary District has been and will continue to operate its critical infrastructure amid the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak. Our primary role is to protect public health and the environment.   We have implemented measures to ensure the safety of our staff and intend to continue to monitor the situation as new information is presented.   Our Administration Office is open and is continuing its business, but ask that the public call or email us before coming to the office for permits or for any other District business, as we are limiting non-critical contact in accordance with guidelines from public health officials.

We also need your help.  For our collection system and our treatment plant to function reliably, it is critically important that our customers do not flush any disinfectant wipes or any other wipe products, even if they are labeled “flushable”.  Also, please do not flush paper towels as they do not break down and can clog sewer pipes.  See the important message from the State Water Resources Control Board on this topic attached here.  Thank you.
