How will the new laws impact customers?

There are no immediate impacts to customers. Over the next several years, water use targets will be set for Ventura Water’s overall service area (not on an individual basis) based upon the framework outlined in the laws. Once targets are established in 2022 and implementation begins in 2023, Ventura Water may work with individual households and businesses to increase water efficiency through rebates, services, programs, or other means.
