Remember to not pour any oil down the drain. Let it cool, than in the trash.
You don't need a sewer backup in the house during that great dinner!

Last week, MISCO Water and the District held Technology Day for vendors to showcase their advanced water and wastewater treatment equipment and other products to local wastewater and water agencies.

It was an inspiring day, as water professionals came together to discuss cutting edge technology and work together towards innovative solutions. Our state-of-the-art liquified oxygen system was showcased for how it helps to reduce odor.

Congratulations are in order! 🎉At our last board meeting, we gave out awards to some of our talented staff.

Congrats to:

Accounting Technician Kelly Gil for receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration!

Field Services Technician Hugo Gonzalez for receiving his 10-year service award!

Field Services Technician Rick Easton for receiving his 10-year service award!

Fall is flying by and Daylight Savings time ends on November 5th. 🍂

As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, it's time to decrease your outdoor watering and adjust to your irrigation timers. With slower evaporation and reduced transpiration, your plants need less moisture!

Happy Halloween from all of us at Leucadia Wastewater District🎃

If you're cooking or baking any yummy treats with fats, oils or grease (FOG)- make sure you know what to do with the FOG! Here's a refresher, below ⬇️

Let FOG cool, pour them in a can, and seal the can with a lid. Pouring FOG down your drain can potentially cause a sewer backup in your home and may lead to a sewer spill.

This upcoming Saturday October 28th from 10am-2pm, turn in prescription drugs safely and anonymously during the Drug Enforcement Administration - DEA's National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
