Los Alamos Community Services District Sewer Service
The Los Alamos Community Services District (LACSD) was formed on October 29, 1956, under Division 4 of the Street and Highway Code for the purpose of providing water service to the Community of Los Alamos under the 1958 act. More

Operation and maintenance at the Wastewater Treatment Plant includes operating and maintaining 66-acres of spray irrigation fields, Map including 5-retention basins, irrigation system repairs and adjustment of irrigation system sprinklers. Monitoring and cleaning of influent and effluent aerator and removal of influent and effluent biosolids. The District also maintains all equipment, such as, the District's backhoe, tractors, pumps and other light equipment, as well as, weekly testing of the emergency back-up generator. 

Other typical maintenance includes the daily cleaning of the comminutor, grit chambers, treatment ponds, as well as, inline filter and intake screens. District operators perform weekly in-house sewer laboratory testing for 5-Day B.O.D. (Biochemical Oxygen Demand), Suspended Solids, Settable Solids and Ph. to ensure the District is complying with our permit and to ensure the treatment plant and irrigation system are running as efficiently as possible. Samples for TDS, Sodium and Chloride are taken quarterly. 

Operation and maintenance at the Wastewater Collection System includes, but is not limited to, installation, repair or replacement of sewer mains and laterals, cleaning of the Bell Street and San Antonio Lift Stations, inspection of sewer clean outs and manholes and inspection of new sewer construction. The District believes in preventative maintenance and hydro jets the entire collection system to prevent Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) and responds to customer concerns about odor or blockages.
