Thank you, Ventura, for an amazing 2022! We have accomplished so much in this year and met so many challenges. As we faced another dry year, we were asked to conserve even more. We met those unprecedented levels of water conservation while continuing to see new development within the City. Our team hit the ground to message conservation by setting up booths at community events, engaging our customers via social media, following up on water waste reports and more. Not only did we benefit from the City reaching up to 29% reduction in water use, our hard-working Conservation Team won an award from the Tri-Counties Section of the California Water Environment Association (CWEA) for the Community Engagement and Outreach Program of the Year! We add this to another award from the Ventura County Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) for Environmental Project of the Year for the Foster Park Fish Passage Project. Our Engineering and Environmental Teams worked to produce a project that meets the needs of our ecologically sensitive water source and have been recognized by their peers for a job well done!
As we wrap up 2022, we look at what we need to do in the future. Our “Wastewater Pollutant Series” gives insight into keeping our water safe and clean (and crafty!) In closing, you will see in our holiday schedule notice below, that City offices will be closed the week of December 26th thru January 2, 2023. But, as always, if you need assistance you can reach us by means of the methods given in the notice.
