What is VenturaWaterPure?

The VenturaWaterPure project will provide a locally-owned, rain independent, and reliable water resource for the community. The project will connect to the existing treatment system and purify water historically discharged from the Ventura Water Reclamation Facility to the Santa Clara River Estuary (SCRE). Upon enhanced treatment at a new Advanced Water Purification Facility (AWPF), the highly purified water will benefit the City, after injection and extraction from a local groundwater basin, as a new supply source. This process is generally known as potable reuse and more specifically as Indirect Potable Reuse (IPR). VenturaWaterPure will help to achieve diversified supplies and meet future water needs.
