Why is the project scheduled for 2025 completion?

The VenturaWaterPure solution must be implemented by 2025 to meet water supply needs and maintain compliance with regulatory and environmental requirements.

As noted above, the City is likely to have a water supply deficit in the future without the introduction of new supply sources. Therefore, this new drought-resistant supply is needed as soon as possible to ensure long-term water reliability.

The City is also subject to permits and a Federal Court decree regarding the discharge of its treated wastewater flows to the SCRE. Those binding rules require compliance by 2025. Not meeting the deadline could subject the City to fines and penalties.
