City Council moved to adopt Water Commission’s recommendation to reduce to a lower stage – declaring a Stage 2 Water Shortage Event with a 10% mandatory water conservation goal.
The Comprehensive Water Resources Report (CWRR) is prepared annually to provide updates on the City’s projected water supply and demand. The CWRR is used along with the City’s Water Shortage Event Contingency Plan (WSECP) to evaluate the City’s current water shortage stage.
We continue to acknowledge that the City’s 100% local water supplies remain vulnerable to environmental, regulatory, operational, and legal constraints. For these reasons, making conservation a way of life remains a top priority for our community! Ventura Water will continue to offer rebate and incentive programs to equip customers to maintain water-efficient practices.
The Stage 2 rate adjustment will become effective July 1, 2020.
