Oxnard Water Conservation
While many areas of California have experienced drought relief, Ventura County continues to face challenging water supply conditions. While the severe drought emergency was lifted in 2017 by the State, Oxnard’s mandatory water conservation actions have remained in effect. As good water stewards, Oxnard’s residents have permanently adopted conservation practices into their daily lives, saving water and saving money.
In recognition that drought conditions will likely cycle over the coming decades due to climate change, the State is now shifting into conservation as a way of life. In May 2018, two long-term water use efficiency conservation bills (SB 606 and AB 1668) were signed into law that call for the creation of a water use target for each urban water agency. The target will be set in 2022 and monitored annually for the overall service area (not on an individual customer basis) based on the standards outlined in the laws. Over the next few years, these new requirements will be developed with stakeholder input and will guide our future conservation program.
