Dear Valued Customers,
I’d like to personally thank the hundreds of families, residents, and community members who attended the Summer Open House event in August to learn more about the proposed VenturaWaterPure Project.
This event would not have been possible without our committed event sponsors Nossaman LLP, Carollo Engineers, Hopkins Goundwater Consultants, and Kennedy Jenks Consulting.
I would like to give a shout out to our tour guides and amazing staff for all their hard work on Summer Open House event.
Additionally, I’d like to extend my sincere appreciation to our neighboring agencies, the City of Oxnard, City of Morro Bay, the City of Pismo Beach, Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, and the Central Coast Chapter - WateReuse Association, who hosted event booths and showcased their innovative potable reuse projects.
Ventura Water is proud to stand along these, and many other forward-thinking agencies across California, in the quest to provide high quality and sustainable water for future generations. Many years of planning, research, and stakeholder meetings have positioned the City of Ventura to be a leader in water reuse.
In fact, earlier this month, the City of Ventura's VenturaWaterPure Demonstration Facility was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's National Water Reuse Draft Action Plan as a model for public outreach and communications.
Back in 2015, the VenturaWaterPure Demonstration Facility tested advanced treatment on a small portion of the City's tertiary-treated effluent to prove the concept of water reuse.
The Demonstration Facility hosted over 60 tours and conducted hundreds of surveys. The Demonstration Facility met all potable water quality goals and allowed the public to understand and gain confidence in water reuse technologies.
Ventura Water will continue to offer interesting and engaging opportunities for the public to get involved in the world of water.
