#PollutionPrevention Week Continues💧
Saving water isn't just about turning off the tap – it's about making a difference at home and work. By being mindful of our water usage, we're not only conserving this precious resource but also cutting down on fuel consumption and lessening the pollution caused by burning fuel and using chemicals. Let's work together for a greener, more sustainable future! 🌿🌱
Happy #PollutionPreventionWeek! 🌎♻️
Maintaining the health of our community and protecting the coastline is a big job and one that we all can contribute to. While our Field Services Technicians clean, inspect, maintain and repair the sewer system, there are things you can do to help prevent sewer spills and conserve water as well!

The District wants to remind homeowners and their contractors to properly dispose of the remaining pool plaster and to not pour pool plaster down the drain or your home’s cleanout. Proper disposal involves dewatering the concrete slurry and taking the hardened concrete remnants to a landfill or a recycling facility for reuse as aggregate.

In June, the District conducted smoke testing in Encinitas. During this process, non-hazardous smoke is pumped through sewer pipelines to private laterals. When properly connected, this smoke should flow out of the roof vents of businesses and residences. However if improperly connected, extra storm water can enter the sewer system. This has the potential to overwhelm the system’s capacity and lead to a sewer spill.
