What actions is the City taking to address the drought?

On May, 31, 2022, the City Council authorized the expansion of a public information campaign for water conservation and the implementation of Stage 2 Water Shortage Event demand reduction measures. Based on the directions from the City Council, the City will continue to enforce water waste prohibitions, offer water efficiency programs/ incentives, and pursue multi-benefit water supply projects, such as the State Water Interconnection Project and the VenturaWaterPure Program.

Additionally, the City’s Parks department has established watering priorities and has stopped irrigating non-functional turf areas, including the turf areas at City Hall.

Ventura Water will continue to assess short and long-term water supply and demands through various planning efforts including the Annual CWRR and the Urban Water Management Plan to ensure a balanced and stable water future. Staff will also continue to closely monitor any updates or changes to the emergency order by the State Water Resources Control Board.
