Failure to follow this advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.

Due to the recent Thomas Fire and power outages, the State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water, in conjunction with Ventura Water, are advising residents of Ventura located North of Poli Street and Foothill Road to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution. An addition area of West Ventura has just been affected to the precautionary area. This is the area of Ventura Avenue area and west of Sanjon Rd.

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. Boiling water is the preferred treatment method to assure that the water is safe to drink in these areas.

We will inform you when tests show that water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 48-72 hours.
