Program Update
The health and safety of our community is our top priority. On March 15, 2020, the City of Ventura declared a local Health Emergency in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

To date, City facilities remain closed to the public, including the Sanjon Maintenance Yard and the Ventura Water Reclamation Facility. As a result, the Residential Recycled Water Mobile Reuse Program has been suspended until further notice. 

For questions regarding the Residential Recycled Water Mobile Reuse Program contact Jason Wong at (805) 677-4135.

The City continues to follow the guidelines and best practices identified by the State, CDC, and County Health Officials. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this dynamic situation. As a reminder, wearing a face covering, practicing social distancing, and staying home if you are sick can help slow the spread and protect the most vulnerable in our community.

Ventura Water produces a significant portion of its water supply from wells that tap the Mound Groundwater Basin, which falls under the jurisdiction of the recently formed Mound Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency (MBGSA). MBGSA is charged with managing the groundwater resources of the Basin pursuant to the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA).

Pursuant to SGMA, MBGSA must develop and implement a groundwater sustainability plan (GSP) to achieve sustainable groundwater management by 2042. The GSP is currently under development. Although Ventura Water is a voting member of MBGSA, your direct participation in the GSP development process is encouraged!
