Ventura Water is dedicated to providing our community with quality water and wastewater services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We have been delivering drinking water from local sources since 1923, cleaning wastewater for more than a century, and preventing stormwater pollution for the past two decades.
Extreme Drought Calls For Extreme Measures
Let's work together during this historic drought to stretch Ventura's local water sources. We started with skipping car washes this summer and now we are going to help each other by sharing water saving tips or practices or actions. Your ideas can serve as inspiration for others as each of us do our part to save our water.
Hear It On The Radio
Starting Labor Day weekend, listen to Ventura County radio stations KHAY, KBBY and KVYB about the "Extreme Water Saver" challenge because the water we save today will be the water we use tomorrow.
Post Your Videos, Pictures, Ideas To Win Prizes
You are invited to post "Extreme Water Saving" videos, pictures and ideas on Ventura Water’s Facebook page to enter the contest. Open to all Ventura County residents (yet to be determined) prizes will be awarded each month this Fall to the posts with the most Likes. (Likes are cumulative so share away!) Post your video/picture and any words of water saving wisdom to the page and we'll share it across to Ventura Water's newsfeed.
We Are In A Drought: Get The Word Out
On September 22, the City Council declared a Water Shortage Emergency as local water supplies continue to drop during the third year of California's historic drought. In addition to water waste prohibitions, the Council approved the Water Shortage Task Force's recommendation to move to a Stage 3 Water Shortage Emergency. Customers are now required to limit outdoor watering through a sprinkler irrigation system to two days a week and not water between the hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Last February, Ventura Water proactively requested customers to voluntarily reduce their water usage by at least 10% in response to diminishing water supplies. While the spring rains helped boost water levels, those gains have been erased by the warmer than normal summer months.
