Water System Pressure Monitoring Stations


This Project consists of enhancing Ventura Water’s Pressure Monitoring system by more than doubling the number of pressure monitoring stations and providing Ventura water staff the ability to monitor the pressure in each pressure zone.  This project will install 19 additional monitoring stations that will provide information on all pressure zones. The monitoring stations are helpful in that they can immediately notify operators of a pipe line break, of over-pressurization due to close valves or malfunctioning pressure reducing valves and to insure that minimum pressures are maintained in the system to prevent contamination.

Starting June 2014

Waterline Replacement- Navigator Drive


This project consists of replacing 3,600 linear feet of deteriorated cast iron water main pipe with new polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This Project also includes installation of new fire hydrants, water valves and water service connections to residents and businesses. The new pipe will last an estimated 100 years and will reduce maintenance service costs. The project scope extends from Spinnaker Drive to the North end of Navigator Drive.

Estimated Start Date- July 2014

Downtown Access Ramps Project


The Downtown Access Ramp project is a high priority project that will enhance and make sure that all ramps in this project are within current ADA compliance.  The City Of Ventura has worked with the Downtown Ventura Organization/Downtown Ventura Partners (DVO/DVP) to select an appropriate color (red tactile concrete panel). The look and feel of the red panels will fit the Downtown since they will match the current brick patterned sidewalk areas while still meeting current standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Community Park Sports Fields – Ball field #5

Work for Ball field #5 includes site preparation/land clearing, grading, new chain-link fence and backstop, irrigation, natural grass turf, and concrete improvements to accommodate spectators, complete with ADA access. The additional field is now needed because the Tri-Valley Girls Softball League will no longer be able to use the fields they have .been using at Ventura College. Since the City has provided fields for boys' leagues, under AB 2404 requirements, we are obligated to provide fields for girls' leagues as well. The new field will also be available for public use when it is not otherwise reserved for use by the Tri-Valley Girls Softball League. The use of the new field will potentially generate additional revenues from tournaments and other fee events which can be used to offset the cost for maintenance of the new field.

Starting Late June 2014
