This is a military town and it’s likely you know a veteran – a family member, friend, neighbor or coworker.

Each year, approximately 15,000 personnel from the Navy and Marines conclude their military careers in San Diego. Some of those veterans transition into public service jobs, including water. We’re proud that 10 percent of current Helix employees are military veterans.

All of us at Helix Water District would like to thank U.S. military veterans, including our employees, for their service and their sacrifices. As a small token of our gratitude, all veterans and active-duty military fish free on Monday, November 11 from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Lake Jennings.

Additionally, for our military veteran customers, we are offering a free water conservation kit that includes a water-efficient showerhead, shower timer, aerators and more. Come by our administration building at 7811 University Avenue in La Mesa to get yours through November 15.

We appreciate your service.
