City Laboratory Receives Certificate of Excellence
The City’s Hale Avenue Resource Recovery Facility (HARRF) Water Reclamation Plant Laboratory is Certified by the State of California through the Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP). The laboratory provides testing for Drinking Water throughout the City, as well as for wastewater, recycled water, Escondido Creek water, storm water, and plant process control samples. Part of maintaining certification by the State is to analyze “blind” or unknown samples annually for analytical testing to ensure quality and accurate results. In the latest State Study, the HARRF Laboratory staff achieved 100 percent Acceptable results in all 69 parameters it tested. This achievement is a demonstration of the superior quality of the HARRF Laboratory staff.

Thank You Girl Scout Troop #4034 of Escondido!
The Troop has been working with Community Services Department to achieve the goal of helping people easily navigate the trails of Kit Carson Park. The purpose of the project was to develop trail names, distances, and a new trail map system in order to enhance trail users’ experience and exposure to the amazing terrain located in Escondido. After more than 8 months of planning, coordination, design, and implementation, the trail names, signage, and map are completed. The Girl Scout Troop will receive their Silver Award for this sustainable community project that has gifted the Escondido community and Kit Carson Park users with years of enjoyment on the trails.
