Water Quality Exceedance Notice (Posted May 2015)


A notice was sent to affected customers regarding the level of Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) detected in the water supply. If you have additional questions regarding this issue please refer to this Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document or contact the Ventura Water Utility Manager, Omar Castro, or Ventura Water Assistant General Manager, Joe McDermott, during normal business hours at (805) 652-4500.


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.  For more information and customer resources to save water and stop water waste, visit
