We're continuing to honor our Field Services Technicians (FSTs) this week for California Water Professionals Appreciation Week💧

Below, we're sharing our award winning Virtual Tour video, to show the community that wastewater employees are essential workers, as the upkeep of our waterways directly correlates to the preservation of public health.

Today is the first day of Water Professionals Appreciation Week 💧

Our District will celebrate with posts through October 10th, so be sure to check back in for updates!

We're kicking off the week by imagining a day without water. Nothing to drink. No water to shower, flush toilets, or do laundry with. Firefighters wouldn't be able to put out fires and farmers wouldn't be able to water their crops.

Water is such a crucial part of our infrastructure and we wouldn't be able to get much done without it.

Reminder: Our application period for the full-time Director of Finance and Administration (DFA) is closing on Friday October 1, 2021 at 4:30PM. Please apply before then.

Recently, San Diego County beaches scored higher than California state averages when it came to cleanliness. Three of those high-ranking beaches happen to be in North County.

We're proud knowing that we have played a part to educate the community about the importance of keeping our beaches clean. Keep up the good work!

Thanks to local resident Aileen for this sunset shot of Ponto Beach🌅

Getting everything properly connected can seem overwhelming. Especially with stormwater versus wastewater connections. But by adhering to these basic guidelines, you’ll be on the right track. LWD maintains the wastewater (sewer) side that you see in the image.

Please contact your local city for stormwater needs or questions.

Congrats on your retirement, Richard! 🎉

Richard A. Duffey has served the Leucadia Wastewater District (LWD) with distinction for over 24 years, and retired earlier this month. Richard began his service at LWD in July 1998 as the Financial Consultant and became the full-time Administrative Services Manager in January 2016.

He has played an integral role in the District's many successes during his tenure including many clean financial audits and numerous financial awards all of which have contributed heavily to the District's excellent financial position.

We're excited to announce our new partnership with Olivenhain Municipal Water District (OMWD)⬇️

During the Leucadia Pump Station Rehabilitation Project, OMWD assisted the District by opening a large valve that could not be opened manually, with their specialized truck that includes hydraulic valve-turning equipment. Since the District does not own this type truck or has trained staff to operate this type of equipment, we reached out to OMWD to assist us and they successfully opened the valve.
