Read how fourth grade teacher, Jennifer Smith, will use her Teacher Grant at El Camino Creek Elementary 🍎

The Water Conservation Strategies project will begin with a discussion of the environmental impacts of importing water from the Bay Delta and Colorado Rivers and the water energy nexus. The students will do an exercise to discover their "water footprint" and think of strategies they can use to conserve water. They will explore the benefits of hydroponic farming and compare water usage of a crop grown in a hydroponic system to a crop grown in soil.

The District offices will be closed today, January 18th, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Call (760) 753-0155 in case of an emergency. #MLKDay

Do you know who our Gafner Water Reclamation Facility is named after? Her name was Forest Gafner, a Leucadia resident and Realtor who was instrumental in forming the Leucadia Wastewater District in 1959. She served on the first Board of Directors, and helped to bring safe treatment and disposal of wastewater to the area, which had previously relied on septic tanks.#tbt
