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.

The District tests wastewater to ensure we are complying with our permit and the treatment plant and irrigation system are running as efficiently as possible.

Samples for TDS, Sodium and Chloride, 5-Day B.O.D.(Biochemical Oxygen Demand), Suspended Solids and Settable Solids are taken quarterly.
