[ARCHIVED] Newest Update "Boil Water Advisory"

Boil Water Advisory


Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua potable.

Tradúzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.


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 all City of Ventura residents to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution. 


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.

For more information call:

Water Utility contact: Joe Marcinko, Ventura Water Utility Manager at 805-652-4504.

State Water Resources Control Board – Drinking Water Field Operations Branch- District Office at 805-566-1326

Local Environmental Health Jurisdiction: 805-654-2818

Please share this information with others who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
