Water and wastewater rates are essential for Ventura Water’s management, operations and maintenance of 675 miles of pipelines, 30 pump stations, three water treatment facilities, one wastewater treatment facility, and 27 tanks and reservoirs that serve more than 110,000 residents, businesses, and visitors. Investment in our water and wastewater systems directly translates to value for our customers.
Like all of our life-giving services and necessary assets, our water and wastewater infrastructure must adapt to changes, planned and unplanned impacts, and be repaired and replaced as infrastructure ages.
A few of the longer-term, multi-benefit projects that Ventura Water is leading for our community include:
- The State Water State Water Interconnection Project, which will expand Ventura’s water supplies by importing water we already own but lack the infrastructure to access.
- City Water Line Interconnections, which are needed to continue to efficiently deliver clean water throughout the City.
- VenturaWaterPure, which will recover, purify, and reuse water for beneficial use.
- Water Reclamation Facility Upgrades, which will enable the City to continue to reliably treat wastewater and meet upcoming regulatory changes.
- Emergency Generators Project, which will add generators to various booster pump station and well sites to provide power during extreme weather events.
