Why construct both the State Water Interconnection and VenturaWaterPure Projects?

The City’s existing local water supplies continue to be challenged by drought, environmental, regulatory, operational, and legal constraints. Due to these impacts, the City recognizes the need for a more diversified water supply. The State Water Interconnection will provide a near-term water supply source to make up for losses in annual yield from existing water sources (Lake Casitas, Ventura River, and groundwater). VenturaWaterPure will provide a rain- independent, locally-owned water source that ensures environmental and legal compliance. The State Water Interconnection Project and VenturaWaterPure provide a diverse and reliable water supply solution to supplement our existing local sources.
