A leader in efficient and effective water management strategies, the City of Ventura is committed to protecting its water resources. As factors like climate change and increased demand continue to impact the Ventura River Watershed, the City’s approach to managing and protecting its water supplies must evolve as well.
Litigation filed by Santa Barbara Channelkeeper arbitrarily targeted one water supply, the Ventura River, and just one water user, the City of Ventura, to shoulder the responsibility of protecting the entire watershed. Instead, the City is proposing a comprehensive and enforceable solution that considers the entire watershed holistically and all of the 100+ diverse users that rely on it. Together, we can come together to establish a reliable water supply for the future.
