Welcome to our newest employees Nitze and Jeffery! Learn about our most recent additions to the Leucadia Wastewater District team below.
Congrats on your retirement, Jeffery!
Jeff served LWD with distinction for over 42 years, and recently retired in December. He began his service as a Maintenance I worker before climbing the ranks to the Maintenance Supervisor position and then later became the Field Services Superintendent in January 2011.
Congratulations to our Teacher Grant Recipients! 🍎
We awarded $5,535 in teacher grants to fund four water/wastewater projects to local schools in our service area.
We had excellent submissions this last fall and are pleased to announce the winners of the 2022-2023 Teacher Grant Program: Katie Oberman of El Camino Creek Elementary, Kristie Mahin of El Camino Creek Elementary, June Honsberger of Official La Costa Canyon High School, and Nancy Jois of Capri Elementary.
The District offices will be closed today, January 16th, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Call (760) 753-0155 in case of an emergency. #MLKDay
Did you know that the District offers a financial assistance program that can reimburse homeowners 50% of your sewer lateral repair costs, up to a maximum of $3,000? To learn more about the District’s Lateral Grant Program, visit the District website at bit.ly/latgrant or call us at (760) 753-0155. The lateral grant must be pre-approved, so contact us before you begin repair work on your sewer lateral.

Thank you to Director Matt Brown for his years of service!
During Director Brown's tenure on the Board of Directors, LWD maintained one of the lowest wastewater service fees in San Diego County while providing an extremely high level of service to LWD's customers.
With all the rain we’ve had recently, are you making sure you are rain ready? 🌧️
Below is a checklist of ways to prepare for upcoming rainfall:
✅ Start capturing rainwater now for later use! This reduces runoff to the ocean, keeping harmful pollutants from reaching beaches and waterways.
✅ Proactively turn off irrigation to save water and minimize runoff.
✅ Do not open or lift manhole covers in the event of street flooding.
A well-deserved congratulations to Field Services Supervisor Gabriel Mendez for receiving his Grade 4 Collection System Maintenance certification from the California Water Environment Association!
Gabe, who was recently promoted to his supervisory role, has been working hard on his own time for this achievement while maintaining his full time duties at LWD since September 2011.
We are grateful to Gabe in his dedication to keeping our community safe and clean.
