Ventura Water is dedicated to providing reliable water services, investing in the maintenance and improvement of its vital infrastructure, and continues to focus on solutions to water supply and water quality challenges. One of the many success stories that have come out of the last five years of drought is Ventura Water’s NO-DES Flushing Unit (Neutral Output Discharge Elimination System). The NO-DES truck eliminates water waste while keeping the City’s 380 miles of water lines clean. Rather than wasting water by flushing it out of the distribution system through fire hydrants, the NO-DES truck circulates the water, filters it and puts it back into the distribution system minimizing waste. The NO-DES truck will save millions of gallons of water and increase our efficiency to deliver and maintain a high quality drinking water product to our customers.
