Permit Process

The District provides sewer service for all the homes, businesses, and other facilities within the boundaries of the District. To verify that a particular address or Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) is within LWD’s service area contact the District office at (760) 753-0155.

LWD sewer service is provided through the issuance of a sewer permit.  If an individual or developer wishes to build a home or several homes he/she must visit LWD to acquire sewer permits. A capacity fee must be paid to LWD prior to the issuing of a sewer permit. The City of Carlsbad and the City of Encinitas require a LWD sewer permit to be executed before they issue a city building permit.
