Ventura Needs More Water

Ventura is one of the largest cities in Southern California to rely solely on local water supplies. Rainfall feeds the Ventura River, Lake Casitas and groundwater basins to meet all community needs. But prolonged drought, increased regulations, and operational and legal challenges have impacted Ventura’s local water supply.

Should drought conditions continue, Ventura’s water demand could outpace its supplies by 2035.
