#WildfirePreparednessWeek was last week, yet we want to remind you that now is a good time to make sure you and your family are prepared 🔥

Check out this video from the City of Carlsbad - Official to view the helpful steps it shows to create that defensible space:

Together, let’s be prepared! Protecting homes from destructive wildfires is a community effort and will take preparation from all of us.

Through Smoke Testing, our Field Services Technicians can detect storm water intrusion within the sewage collection system💨

The results from the Fall 2020 smoke testing indicated that there were over 50 sewer defects on private property, as well as a few improper connections. We appreciate the homeowners working with the District to resolve these issues.

As a courtesy, the District assisted homeowners by replacing their broken or missing clean-out caps located on their property.

Happy National Teachers' Day🍎

We want to express gratitude to teachers for helping students keep learning before, during and after COVID-19 school closures. Teachers always go to incredible lengths to educate their students and we thank them for that.

A special shout out to the local teachers who have utilized our Teacher Grant Program. Thank you to these educators, so students can learn about water resource management and ocean water pollution prevention through hands-on environmental education projects.

Have you seen our virtual tour?💧

Watch as Field Services Technician Curney Russell explains the significance of easements and why our team needs access to them.

Many easements are located in customers' yards, parks, trails and canyon areas within the District service area. Our team maintains easements to prevent roots growing into sewer lines, which could create a blockage and lead to a sewer spill, threatening the integrity of our waterways.
