Water Quality Exceedance Notice (Posted 2/17/15)
During the regular testing of our water distribution system, the State Water Resources Control Board Division of Drinking water (CSWRCB) notified Ventura Water that an isolated part of our water supply - serving the Pierpont and adjacent area - had exceeded the allowable Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) level based on the latest test results.
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.
