WATER SHORTAGE EMERGENCY CONSERVATION REQUIRED- SAVE WATER NOW
Let’s conserve together
The District Board of Directors approved Resolution 22-10 on May 10, 2022 declaring Stage 2 Drought Water Supply Shortage in response to State of California and County of Ventura drought emergency declarations.
With three years of record-breaking drought conditions resulting in historically low State Water Project deliveries from Northern California, our supply resiliency is being tested like never before. 2022 is the driest start to the calendar year on record the last 100 years in CA.

Water Saved today is water we can keep in reserves for tomorrow. The more we conserve now, the longer we can put off more drastic mandates.
During the current water crisis, we appreciate your help to reduce water use as much as possible.
